On Thursday 21 June, the Arttenders team took a train to Amsterdam to celebrate and be merry. Finally, the day had come to festively unveil Ian Kirkpatrick’s colorful mural for the residential entrance of the Amstel Tower! The soon-to-be residents will come home to a giant work of art every day.

The artwork was a gift from project developer Provast to housing company Vesteda. The Amstel Tower itself is designed by Powerhouse Architects and has been coined as ‘an example of feminine architecture’ by Dutch newspaper Het Parool. On our own project page you can find a beautiful showreel of the artwork but first, scroll down for a short recap of the day!
