A listed canal house
It is hard to believe that Herengracht 414, a listed canal house in one of the most prestigious locations in Amsterdam, had spend quite a while up for rent. A private owner had bought the property to live there themself but eventually moved elsewhere. Nick de Sonnaville turned to Broersma for advice on behalf of the owner, and we recommended a list of improvements that could turn this historic home into a contemporary office space.
The end result is breathtaking
‘A stylish room overlooking the garden. A glass atrium. Classic ornamentation. There was no lack of historical details in this pre-war tailor’s shop,’ says Merijn Hartog of Broersma Werken. The trick was to keep the original charm while still modernising the space. After that, the search for a new tenant didn’t take long. It proved to be the ideal new home for De Ambassadors, a creative production studio where everything revolves around the craft of creativity. Working with the owner, they completely renovated the building to reflect their unique vision of craftsmanship. The end result is breathtaking.
