Helicopter Amsterdam is an initiative by Vincent Polak, Sophie Neijts and Bernard van Veen, founded in 2010 – as Sink Or Swim at the time. Our goal is to provide workspace for performing artists, mostly (live) musicians. As of 2019 Helicopter Amsterdam manages 280m2 for creative purposes divided over 7 rooms and a common room.

Helicopter not only offers fully equipped rooms for an hourly fee, we also rent out empty rooms for prolonged periods. The experience of our users is our main priority. This resulted in spaces that resemble artists’ needs and wants to the fullest: Quality, affordability, flexibility and homeliness.
