Zuidas and the Gershwin Brothers

A recent Stone base project, Zuidas in Amsterdam is one of the city’s most fashionable areas. Close to the Amsterdam forest, it is a modern residential and business district, and unlike the old city centre it features contemporary architecture, including many high-rise buildings. Zuidas is described as having a ‘Manhattan feel’, so it is appropriate that two of its newest residential buildings are named after famous New Yorkers; these prestigious projects are called George and Ira, for George Gershwin the composer and his lyricist brother Ira. George is faced with light yellow brick, with contrasting bands of decorative concrete. Ira’s brick is reddish brown.

Stone base has used McKeon stone to make a major contribution to the surroundings of these elegant buildings, where public spaces have been designed to create a relaxed and tranquil environment. Limestone was chosen in this setting for its natural and timeless effect.
