We have just finished a new commission of Amsterdams Welvaren. Opened in 1830, the house was the first kindergarden in the Netherlands and in 1947 it was  recognized by the Nobel Prize Association for its dedication to improving the well-being of children.

Lying in the heart of Amsterdam there is a special building that is hard to miss. Its unique architecture and rich history have made it into one of the city’s cherished landmarks. A history that brought three nations together from the ashes of war to create a building with a mission. 

Amsterdam's Welvaren is a story centuries in the making. A ship that turned into a building. A building that made its mark on the world. Welcome onboard!
