These buildings in Amsterdam, formerly a pair of barns intended for crop storage, have been transformed into modern, loft-like living spaces. Located just north of the IJ river in the neighborhood of Amsterdam Noord. Houben & Van Mierlo Architecten lead the design on these charming homes.
The buildings went through several metamorphoses over the years, with additions and outbuildings being added on to the main building as needs changed. Both buildings were stripped back to the original shells before renovation began.
The large open-plan rooms allowed for high ceilings and loft- living spaces. The new floors were plastered cement-screed, and the original ceilings were kept, exposed for additional character. Brick walls were whitewashed, and the pitched roofs were given addition support with black steel columns, in keeping with the industrial aesthetic.
At the request of one of the clients, two photographers, a photography studio was incorporated into the design. The photography studio features clerestory windows with natural light, providing a natural viewing area for the work. A window in the interior wall allows a view from the master bedroom into the studio.

My husband and I rented a granny unit studio that was 400 square feet. We were just teenagers when we first moved in and couldn’t afford much, which is why we decided to rent it. The perk was that while it was hideous as all get out, our landlord was willing to let us do whatever we wanted to the place. When we first moved in it was covered head to toe in wood panelling and ceiling tiles. We tore everything down, textured the walls, painted the cabinets and redid the floors. We even decided to stay here after I found out I was pregnant and converted the sunroom into a baby room.

I received a Savor starter kit — the Baby and the School Years keepsake boxes — from a friend a few months ago. These boxes are such a beautiful, organized, and well-curated way to store the important objects from your son or daughter’s childhood, and I’ve never seen anything quite like them. Check out my Daily Find video above and read on below to learn more about the Savor keepsake library and why every parent should have one!
