Living In A Garage In Style, In Amsterdam

View all 18 Photos

Located in a picturesque and hidden spot in the middle of AmsterdamNoordermarkt is literally just around the corner – this striking apartment gives new meaning to the living in a garage concept. A previous warehouse and garage built before 1906, this property underwent a complete transformation in 2013, at the hand of designer Dorien Knegt. Now, the space that measures 182 square meters on one floor include three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a gorgeous kitchen area at the heart of the apartment as well as a sprawling living room and dining room space. The exposed brick walls, concrete floors, stainless steel surfaces, antique tiles, and old wooden beams give the interior a distinctive personality.

Quirky details abound, from the eclectic furniture to the large artworks and the stained glass sliding door. Bathed in natural light and designed with ceilings that reach 3 meters in height, this gorgeous apartment has the look and feel of an airy New York loft. This beauty is currently up for sale through the Funda real estate site, and was still available at the time of writing. If you have around $1.5 million dollars, you can enjoy the dream of living in a garage in style, right in the center of Amsterdam. Photographs© Alexander David Jansen.
