Short community video’s

Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam is working on a series of short video’s to give the community of the Marineterrein, as well as the ‘world outside’ a better idea of what’s going on at the Marineterrein. If you want to participate as well, don’t hesitate to contact Sjoerd at and he’ll be in touch for an appointment to shoot a video at your company.

Check out the video’s Sjoerd has made so far;

  • XRBase (see it here)
  • IJsfontein (check it out here)
  • Open State Foundation (view here).

More building signs

This week, more big building signs have been up on Buildings 001, 002, 003 and 024. In the new year, Buildings 027 and 006 will follow.

The signs are 80 cm tall and – depending on the location – up to 160 cm wide. Each building will have 2 signs on 2 to 4 corners, so they can be seen from every angle.

Why these new building numbers?
During the military past of the – now open – Marineterrein, all buildings were given their own number. Due to a lack of street names and the size of the buildings, the new building numbers can be very helpful for visitors to find their way across the Marineterrein.

Wayfinding on the Marineterrein consists of roughly 4 components:

  1. Street plan signs (at the entrances)
  2. Door signs (metal frames with blue signs)
  3. Routes (a yellow route along Kade West and a red route across the Voorwerf) visible on lampposts and signposts
  4. Building numbers

Name Marineterrein Amsterdam


Gebruik in titels en in eerste alinea altijd voluit ‘Marineterrein Amsterdam’ (zonder lidwoord), daarna kun je volstaan met ‘het Marineterrein’. Indien nodig kun je toevoegen dat het gaat om een voormalig militair gebied. Het andere deel van het Marineterrein is nog steeds militair gebied en heet officieel Marine Etablissement Amsterdam.



Use in titles and in the first paragraph always ‘Marineterrein Amsterdam’ (without the), after that it’s ‘the Marineterrein’. If necessary, you can add that it is a former military area. The other part of the site is still a military area and is officially called Marine Etablissement Amsterdam.

New @Marineterrein: Sensiks

Sensiks builds multi-sensory pods in which people can receive treatment for trauma or anxiety. Sensiks uses video, audio, odor, temperature, wind and light. In that way, all senses are stimulated to mimic life-like situations. This can be useful for treating burnouts or post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). Sensiks also develops programs to enhance the quality of life of the elderly and disabled people. Sensiks is part of XRBASE and is housed in Building 27E. If you are interested in a demo, contact
