The residents of the Beethoven neighborhood still enjoy the urban planning stamp that architect Berlage left on the district in the last century. From villas to mansions: characteristic of this 1930s neighborhood, which is almost entirely surrounded by water, are the spacious homes in the Amsterdam School style. The facade stones and bridge sculptures by Hildo Krop, who was awarded the honorary title of City Sculptor of Amsterdam, also give the neighborhood cachet. In the Beethovenstraat, the coffee bars and restaurants such as Van der Veen and Ferilli’s give the district a young and dynamic character. On the Olympiaplein you will find the baker Le Fournil and Fromagerie L’Amuse. The wide avenues and the greenery of the Beatrixpark, with its modern sculptures and old trees, create a sense of space and are ideal for sports and relaxation. The neighborhood is known for its good primary and secondary schools and also for its convenient location in relation to the Ring and Amsterdam Zuid station.

In response to rationalism, a group of architects emerged in the early 20th century with a desire for more artistic expression. This gave birth to an expressionist architectural style known as the Amsterdam School. The focus here was on external form, which was solid and robust. Characteristic features included ladder windows: windows divided by numerous mullions. This architectural style can be frequently observed in homes originally constructed as social housing. Plan Zuid is the urban planning framework for expansion neighborhoods located roughly south of the Ceintuurbaan and the De Lairessestraat, and between the Amstel and Schinkel rivers: encompassing the Nieuwe Pijp, Stadionbuurt, Apollobuurt, and Rivierenbuurt districts. The plan dates back to 1915, and the district was largely completed by 1930. The annexation of a significant portion of the Nieuwer-Amstel municipality in 1896 enabled Amsterdam’s southward expansion. Architect H.P. Berlage was tasked with formulating an urban planning scheme. At the core of Plan Zuid lay geometry, predominantly featuring triangles and pentagons. Berlage aimed to achieve unity through this, with all segments being equal and offering space for monumentality in central areas. In the eastern part, the structure was shaped by the Y-shaped layout of Vrijheidslaan, Churchilllaan, and Rooseveltlaan. In the western part, the Minervalaan was meant to be the central axis. Between these traffic arteries, Berlage envisioned tranquil streets and squares.
In 2011, the apartment underwent a complete renovation and redesign under the guidance of Erjan Design. This plan prioritized space, light, and luxury.

Wat de bewoonster gaat missen
Twaalf jaar geleden werd ik verliefd op dit heerlijke appartement in de Jan van Eijckstraat. Bij het uitbrengen van mijn bod bleek de woning van de markt te zijn gehaald. En, voor echte liefde moet je werken… Ik heb de stoute schoenen aangetrokken, aangebeld bij de verkopende partij (de onderburen) en een paar weken later was mijn verhuizing van Hoofddorp naar het prachtige Oud-Zuid een feit!
Het appartement is onder begeleiding van architect Erjan Borren volledig gestript, compleet opnieuw opgebouwd en ingedeeld, waarbij maximaal gebruik is gemaakt van de ruimte. Het geheel is afgewerkt met hoogwaardige en tijdloze materialen. Wat dit huis voor mij zo speciaal maakt?
• Bijna 100 m² oppervlakte op één woonlaag;
• Het vrije uitzicht door de groene brede Breughelstraat op de Apollolaan;
• De eigen opgang met hal en directe entree in de woning op de eerste etage;
• Het brede woongedeelte aan de voorzijde van de woning met twee erkers, openslaande deuren en een balkon;
• Het zonnige balkon aan de achterzijde met kastruimte, uitkijkend op prachtige rustige binnentuinen;
• De luxe ruime badkamer met inloopdouche en ligbad;
• De gezellige gashaard;
• De twee slaapkamers met inbouwkasten;
• De airconditioning in de hoofdslaapkamer;
• De aparte ruimte voor wasmachine en droogtrommel;
• De houten dubbele visgraat vloer, gerookt en getrommeld, die 4 jaar geleden is geplaatst;
• De heerlijk rustige straat met ruim voldoende parkeergelegenheid, en de gezellige Beethovenstraat direct om de hoek!
In dit appartement heb ik 12 zeer gelukkige jaren geleefd. Mijn woning is mijn anker, en om die reden is het met zorg en liefde ingericht en onderhouden. Mijn grootste wens is dat de nieuwe bewoners dit ook zullen doen, want met pijn in mijn hart verlaat ik dit paleisje. Om binnenkort een nieuwbouwappartement aan de Amstel te gaan betrekken! Gelukkig werk ik in het ‘Apollohouse’ en zal ik dagelijks in deze fijne buurt blijven komen!
