“The architecture of Ten Kateschool is a timeless design: the balance between old and new creates a unique living experience. We have also applied unconventional combinations of glass, steel and wood to showcase the space.”
Rutger Heeringa - Kodde Architecten
“The interior of the apartments is robust and industrial, implementing stunning materials for the finishes. The one-of-a-kind stairwell was our inspiration; it is one of the building's eye-catchers.”

BUILDING & NEIGHBOR-
Ten Kateschool was built in the early 20th century. A captivating mix of Amsterdam School architecture and Art Nouveau nostalgia. Stained-glass, granite and cast iron, it has all been preserved.
The Bellamy neighborhood evolved from the early 16th century, when a single owner sold over 20 plots of land in order to build gardens, playhouses and country retreats. Later, small-scale industrial ventures included diamond cutters, leather tanneries, sawmills, followed by textile mills and bread, rusk and cocoa manufacturers. Around 1870, the neighborhood had become an industrious area with a colorful collection of residents, comprised of merchants, shopkeepers and craftsmen.
