Timeless Canal House, Amsterdam

A tall narrow house stretches to the sky over the Amsterdam canals in all its glory. It is home to rooms in various colours and finishes that tell a compelling story. 

This 17th-century building with a unique sandstone facade was restored from top to bottom, preserving and rediscovering its classical magic. With a hand-carved central staircase, handpainted silk wallcoverings and intricate boiserie, this home is vailed in a luxurious mystique.

 

Further, upstairs the style becomes more contemporary with linear features and more minimal decor to pose a juxtaposition to the classic lower floors. This creates an unexpected dynamic that adds a mischievous character to this historical home.
