A Modern Loft-Style School Conversion in Amsterdam

It’s always a joy to see an old building converted into a new purpose so it can function for years to come. This former fashion school in Amsterdam has been converted into 26 modern apartments.

The former fashion school was built in 1914 and 1969, each with specific characteristics that make this building unique. This sustainable, stylish, and playfully designed loft of 202 square meters is located on the third floor and features high ceilings of 4.20 meters, large windows that flood the home with light, a balcony, and a roof terrace.

One of the other apartments of this former school building has also appeared on The Nordroom. You can see that home tour by clicking here.
