Artists enclave brings Sloterdijk to life!
A new city center will appear in the coming years between the railway viaducts of Sloterdijk. LYCKA provides Amsterdam with a brand new place where about 40 artists can live and work. Where they can inspire and ignite each other with their creative drive.
Contact and connection play an important role in LYCKA, between the living group upstairs and the studios in the broedplaats ground below, but also with the environment and the residents of Sloterdijk-Centrum.
Sloterdijk-Centrum is currently known as an office location and transport hub. With the construction of approximately 1500 homes in the coming years, this area will change drastically. It will also become the gateway to Havenstad, a new district that will cover the entire Westpoort area. Such ambitious plans are not just a matter of pouring a lot of concrete. The community of artists in LYCKA is intended as an injection of creativity that should accelerate the transformation of Sloterdijk Centrum: from ‘a draft hole’ to a place where there is something to experience.
In the LYCKA residential tower, 28 homes have been realized for young CAWA artists. In addition, the 7 studios in the broedplaats, which together provide 15 workplaces, provide artists and starting creative companies with a place to set up their practice in a district full of growth opportunities. You can come together in the multifunctional LYCKABuurtkamer where meetings and events take place for and by the neighborhood and the creatives from LYCKA.
