The western strip of the Science Park area borders Amsterdam’s ‘Indische buurt’ district and is situated near the center of Amsterdam. The first homes on the Archipelago estate at Amsterdam Science Park were completed in 2007.
Together with the public spaces they make for a park-style residential setting. The apartment blocks have been designed by various architects, so each has a unique character. The development is characterized by its low-car nature, the public space with squares and inner courtyards, and the green, water-rich ambience.

Milos complex (formerly The Castle), developed by Heddes Vastgoed in collaboration with Synchroon from a design by HVDN Architecten, won the Zuiderkerk Prize for the best housing project in Amsterdam in 2008. Milos is at the westernmost tip of the Archipelago.
Milos is an impressive complex surrounded by water, comprising 108 dwellings and a secure parking lot. The dwellings on offer are particularly varied, ranging from tower apartments and penthouses to residences and ground-floor, upstairs and end apartments.
Claus en Kaan Architecten in Amsterdam designed Andros, the housing development adjacent to Milos in collaboration with Blauwhoed. The building has several facilities as laundry services, guest rooms, a fitness room and facilitypoint.
This building is designed by 24H Architecture and has 87 luxury appartments.
