The Dutch designer is taking over a five-storey former school building at 187 Westerstraat in the Jordaan quarter of Amsterdam.

Called Westerhuis, the 5500 sq m centre aims to become a flagship Amsterdam's creative businesses. Wanders' own studio will move into Westerhuis when it opens in November 2007.

Wanders is inviting creative businesses - both new and established - to take studios, workshops and offices in the building, which will be open to the public.

Applications need to be submitted by 15 January 2007, after which a selection panel will select candidates to ensure a varied mix of cultural businesses.

The application form is online here.

A diagram of the Westerhuis building and floorplans are shown below.

    Ook al ben ik te laattoch zou ik nog graag mij in willen schrijven voor een ruimte in dit mooie pand. Via Aleksandar Rublek, met wie ik vaak samenwerk, werd ik op jullie plannen gewezen.

    Is er nog een mogelijkheid om me in te schrijven of op een geinteresseerde lijst te komen.

    Ik hoor graag van jullie.
