The Cohesion Don Bosco nominated twice

The Cohesion Don Bosco has been nominated no less than 2 times by The Class Foundation. In the category "Best Campus" and in the category "Best mixed use development".


The Cohesion Don Bosco was developed according to the concept of "The Cohesion Urban Village"; a city village as a campus. Don Bosco is part of the renovation of the Amsterdam New West Center that is now under construction. The 90 x 90 meter plot contains a parking garage for 200 cars, a large supermarket, shops, bicycle shed, internal expedition street, 429 homes, Co-working and other communal facilities that fit the vision of The Cohesion coliving. An unprecedented density and mix of functions. An urban village as a campus in the city."Bravoure in Osdorp" as SBB the builder of Don Bosco calls it.


Not a closed building block on an (anonymous) plinth of shops, but the blocks are on the ground. Clear all-sided residential blocks provide diversity to the shopping street as well as the inner area of the residential environment as conceived and designed by Studio Ninedots.


The Class Foundation

"In 2011, The Class Foundation was founded in response to a growing student housing crisis in the Netherlands. This regional scope widened throughout the past decade but the core purpose remained; unveiling innovative solutions to the common challenge in solving the student housing crisis"
