    Default A Former Factory in Amsterdam


    Herman Wouters for The New York Times
    Janneke Heerkens, 38, and her husband Sven Pinck, 40, bought a former factory in the heart of Amsterdam, converting it into a sleekly designed four-story home with a new double-height window and a central atrium. The cost of the building purchase and renovation was 1 million euros ($1.3 million).



    Herman Wouters for The New York Times
    The heart of the house is the dining and kitchen area on the second level where Sven Pinck, Janneke Heerkens and daughter Ella, 2, enjoy breakfast at an oak and steel-framed table that the couple made. The cactus photograph is by Marjorieke Glaudemans, Mr. Pinck’s sister-in-law, and was a wedding present. The stairs behind the family lead up to a minimalist living room and Ms. Heerkens’s office.

    It still looks just like a factory. With a dash of M.C. Escher endless stairs thrown in.

    Blech. Love the size of the bathroom but it's too dark.

    Perhaps European children aren't as retarded as our brand.

    Dutch children have incredible stairs-skills.

    Nice place.

    Yes, have you seen the size of our asses? They're tough to maneuver. Looks like a hipster architecture firm. No thanks.
