A Modern Home in a Historic Amsterdam Canal House

A former diamond polishing factory in Amsterdam has been converted into an apartment complex. The canal home dates back to the 19th century but inside, the interiors are modern and grand.

The 332 square meter home on the ground floor of the historic building has just been renovated. The spacious home is designed into a perfect blend of high-end, comfortable living and a peaceful atmosphere.

All of the materials, interior pieces, and lighting have been carefully chosen, from Arabescato marble and Belgian travertine to fittings created by Dutch designer Piet Boon.


From the hallway, two large hand-made solid walnut wood arched doors lead you to the grand open-plan living space. Especially in this room, the ceiling height is magnificent (3,57 meters).


Six high arched windows flood the room with natural light.


The design is minimalistic, each item is carefully selected and with a combination of textiles it still feels warm and very stylish.


There is a subtle division between the sitting and dining areas by raising the floor a little.


Two large arched doorways lead you to the stylish kitchen. The island and worktops are made from Dekton stone.


The living spaces are located at the front of the house and this hallway with a large skylight and bespoke planter welcomes you into the private rooms of the house.


The home office has a wall and door entirely made of glass to overlook the small indoor garden.


The master bedroom is located all the way in the back of the house and has a large outdoor terrace attached to it.


The apartment has a beautiful urban garden that spans 36 square meters.


In total, the house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.


The bathroom washbasins are made from Belgian travertine and the walk-in shower has a  quartz stone slab.
