The Netherlands is changing, and so are the people living there. More space is becoming available for “joie de vivre” and for “dolce far niente” in our modern but very busy lives.
At Vesteda, the largest housing based investment fund in the Netherlands, we fully appreciate this. Perhaps it's because of our Southern temperament. More likely, it's because of our inner wellspring - our passion for building and creating enjoyable spaces for people to live in.
Vesteda operates on the basis of a clearly defined philosophy. Roughly 28,000 rental units, designed and located throughout the Netherlands, are witnesses to this philosophy. And our investments in our surroundings, in architecture, and interior design are clearly profitable. Visit us to find out more about “the good life.”
It all starts with the choice of location. We are continually looking for top locations - that particular plot of land alongside the river, that area in the heart of the city, or that particular skyline. We don't cut costs when it comes to location.
Of course, it's also about the quality of the buildings we invest in. It's about aesthetics and functionality, space and light. The architecture must also do justice to a special location. So it's only logical that we also work with special architects who have demonstrated vision as well as talent: leading architects such as Wiel Arets, Jo Coenen, Bob van Reeth, Hubert-Jan Henket, Francine Houben and Álvaro Siza.
But a well-designed contemporary building in the right location is not the end of the story. The immediate surroundings - your new neighbourhood - are just as important. Trees and grass, light, fresh air, and water are just as important as glass, steel, wood and bricks.
