A Luxurious Apartment in an Amsterdam Canal House

Nestled in the heart of Amsterdam, on the most picturesque stretch of the Herengracht, stands a historic canal house that has been turned into three apartments. On the ground floor, we can find this luxurious split-level apartment with three bedrooms, a patio, and a total floor plan of 191 square meters.

Between 2016 and 2019, the canal house was renovated by The Collective Studio to create dwellings that harmoniously blend historic character with luxurious contemporary interiors. The apartment showcases the typical characteristics of luxurious canal houses with large windows and high ceilings that create a grand atmosphere.

A couple of years ago, this apartment – and the other two apartments in the building – were also featured on The Nordroom. A link to that article can be found at the end of this article.

The entire house features lime and tadelakt wall finishes combined with a black oak floor laid in a chevron pattern. The home is a masterpiece of interior design, which is completely coordinated and inspired by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent’s love for Marrakech.

The raised ground floor is home to an open-plan kitchen and dining room with high ceilings and large windows that offer canal views. The dining room gives access to the patio garden.
