In 1650, government of Amsterdam decided to build three Islands on the eastern edge of the city. Shipyards, Navy had to be stationed on island West, Kattenburg. A few years later, it became a construction site for Arsenal. Construction began in 1655 after the Dutch lost in the First Anglo-Dutch war and there was a strong need for professionalization of the Navy to protect the merchant fleet. The foundation of a building consists of 2. 300 wood piles from Oslo, and the building itself is constructed entirely of brick. Two years after graduation, in 1658, Joost van den Vondel dedicated the poem To Zeemagazijn. During the first half of the eighteenth century, Admiralty gave notice that houses were slowly sinking into the earth, common problem with building projects in Amsterdam. Some mistakes in construction when laying Foundation, plus the weight of the building and peat soil of Amsterdam unite in a dangerous situation. To prevent this, buttresses were added to the base of the building with risalit built on four sides of the building. In 1791, great fire burnt the whole house. Instead of having to tear it down and build a new Arsenal in its place, it was decided to plaster the building to mimic Sandstone, creating the characteristic white appearance it has today. After the French invasion in 1795, Dutch Admiralty was disbanded and was formed by national fleet, Arsenal, and also change. He no longer kept guns, ropes and gunpowder, but clothes and food. After the French left, building was transferred to the newly formed Dutch fleet remained in control of the Navy until 1973.
