The project

The Noorderparkbar, located in Amsterdam North since 2012, is for one hundred percent built from materials from Marktplaats.



Reuse is appreciated, just like the simple and effective layout of the space. Well- balanced, the building mediates between the outside world represented by the park, the in-between world formed by the terrace, and the inner world defined by the café. The overall picture radiates naturalness. The strictness of the colours black and white is fascinating. Furthermore, it exudes a deep sense of intimacy.

— The designers were interested in the stories behind the materials, which in their view would imbue the bar with instant meaning.
