A converted factory in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. The basement contains a guest suite. The ground floor has an office and showroom, plus a living room, double-height kitchen-diner, a bathroom and an enclosed courtyard. On the first floor there’s a master bedroom suite with a dressing room, plus 2 further bedrooms and a studio space.
With its mismatched chairs and oversized chandelier over a beaten-up table, this area sums up the couple’s rough-luxe style. It’s also the natural spot to enjoy the shift between indoor and outdoor spaces.

The owners renovated the original ceiling to create a double-height space with a first-floor corridor overlooking the kitchen. There are lamps behind the shelf that direct light down onto the work surface and upwards to illuminate the bricks at night.
The gentle injection of luxury, with richly gathered fabrics, cosy sheepskins and soft velvets invite lounging.
The home office is situated at the front of the converted factory and shares the same brickwork and concrete floor as the main part of the house. Layers of light – from angled ceiling lamps and pendants – add depth and warmth to this functional space.
The tadelakt walls create a warmer, more natural look that ordinary tiles – you can see the hands of the craftsman in it.
