Amsterdam City Scape 1:5000
In 2011, brothers Robert and Gavin Paisley decided they were done with their business “developing back-office systems software.” “We were desperate to make something with our hands,” says Gavin. The duo set about choosing a new creative business and hit the jackpot with architectural-model-making, using both traditional plaster-cast methods (hence “Chisel”) and modern 3-D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) technology (hence “Mouse”). They set up the Chisel & Mouse studio and from here, the Paisley boys work on both elements of the Chisel & Mouse business: a collection of models based on popular landmarks and buildings and the bespoke angle, working with clients to make an any-size maquette of their own home, favorite architectural structure, or even an entire section of a much-loved city.

Amsterdam has its origins in the 12th century when locals built a dam over the river Amstel leading to the village being named "Aemstelredamme". In the Middle Ages, Amsterdam was surrounded by a moat, called the Singel, which now forms the innermost ring in the city, and makes the city centre a horseshoe shape. The canal system was heavily developed in the early 17th century, considered the city's Golden Age, to accommodate large scale immigration. Four concentric half-circles of canals with their ends emerging at the IJ bay were constructed. Amsterdam is now home to more than one hundred kilometres of canals. It is thought that the considerations of the layout were purely practical and defensive rather than ornamental. The layout of the inner city canal ring was inscribed on the World Heritage List by Unesco in 2010.
