Photographer Arjan Benning and designer Kristian Kieft took street-level pictures of 96 Amsterdam appartments. The scenes behind the lighted windows give an idea of contemporary living in all layers of society; from student to entrepeneur, from people on social security to artist.

The housing market is completely dried-up yet housing agency site Funda attracts more visitors then ever. We love to take a peek at the neighbours interior.
Photo installation 'Building Amsterdam' by photograper Arjan Benning and designer Kristian Kieft allows us a view of contempary living conditions in Amsterdam.
They photographed the lighted windows in the evening, from the street.
The pictures have been mounted into a model appartment building of twelve floors; a 'theatre of intimacy'.

The installation has been produced in a small edition and is for sale. Proceeds go to JES (Je Eigen Stek), a project for the homeless.
