Introduction

    Food Center Amsterdam

    Amsterdams hidden gem

    FCA

    THE food district of Amsterdam

    For the redevelopment plan of Food Center Amsterdam AM/BAM formed a consortium in which Mattmo joined. The question: How do we brand this new area? Our contribution to the plan was the brand positioning and identity for the area, and a presentation of the new concept for the client: the City of Amsterdam. Based on the long history of Amsterdam’s food wholesale market and the unique role for the city, we developed the Marktkwartier (Market Quarter), THE food district of Amsterdam. The place where next to the wholesale function a lively new section of Amsterdam arises where everything is about food. A delightful place to live, work and stay, with the monumental Market Hall at its centre. 

    For the presentation to the Amsterdam municipality we created a special magazine to bring the new combination of functions and the enormous potential of the new Marktkwartier to life. The extensive plan was offered to the client in wooden Marktkwartier crates.

    Challenge

    For the redevelopment plan of the Food Center Amsterdam AM/BAM formed a consortium in which Mattmo participated in.

    The challenge was how do we brand the new area? Creating a social hub of commerce and interaction.

    Solution

    Our contribution to the plan was the brand positioning and identity for the area and presentation of the concept to the City of Amsterdam.

    We based our proposal design on the history of Amsterdam’s old food markets and the interests that the community had in food culture.

    Result

    What we created was the Marktkwartier (market quarter) a wholesale food market in Amsterdam.

    Besides its wholesale function and focus on food, the area was created to be a lively place to live, work and stay, with the monumental market hall at its center.

    For the presentation Mattmo created a special magazine to bring the new combination of function and the enormous potential of the new Marktkwartier to life. The extensive plan was offered to the client in wooden Marktkwartier creates to help create feel of what the area represents.
