Big mouth, warm heart

The Joan is a typical case of big mouth and warm heart. For behind a sleek glass facade with sturdy steel crosses, a creative surrounding is hidden where it is very agreeable to be.

Once inside you will also find a world upside down. Here, inside is outside and outside is inside. The presence of living vertical vegetation in various places makes you feel like you are in the open air. The feeling is emphasized by the transparent facades and glass and light-reflecting ceilings. The ‘green lungs’ also refresh the indoor atmosphere 24/7, so here you always breathe fresh and healthy air. Great for well-being and comfort.

Highly visible with its strategic location along the A10 and A2 receiving 190,000 unique views a day.

The perfect spot for creative & aware companies.


Work, relax, join the community

Thousands of square meters where ‘residents’ can work, chill out and link up to their heart’s content.

Covered balconies along all four facades have been arranged as a living room over the full length and width. Through French doors you will find cool hangouts where you can sit outside in comfort early in the year. Ideal for Friday afternoon drinks, but also for receiving visitors in a relaxed and chilled-out environment. 

At the ground floor, The Joan gets into dialogue with her environment. Here she makes room for publicly-accessible hospitality, shops, showrooms and studios. And in the adjacent ‘green’ parking garage with a vegetated facade, there is room for 246 cars. 


Amsterdammers among each other

For the design of Amsterdam’s The Joan, an Amsterdam architectural firm was engaged: OZ. The agency has a worldwide track record with more than 30 years of experience. When designing, OZ mainly focuses on sustainable and location-specific architecture and likes to look for intelligent design solutions. The aim is: people should feel at home in a building, whether they work or live there. OZ makes buildings with a strong identity that is sustainable for the users, the stakeholders and the environment in which they are located. The Joan is the finest example of this approach.

Fundamental to all of OZ’s work is its responsibility for social and environmental sustainability. To this end, this agency likes to work together with customers, users, contractors and other stakeholders. For the construction of The Joan, OZ worked together with Arcadis – one of the largest players in the field of sustainable design and technology. Together they developed an ingenious design to promote the health and well-being of ‘the residents’ of The Joan.
