Former canteen of the Koninklijke Nederlandsche Stoomboot Maatschappij (KNSM) built in the early 1950s. The building was used until the 1970s as a canteen for the shipmen who worked for the KNSM and then until the early 1980s as artists' workshops.
In the 1990s, the building was redeveloped into 7 unique and creative loft apartments.
Meanwhile, the building is rightly a municipal monument and still reminds us of the flourishing post-war shipping industry of Amsterdam.

More information

MVA neighbourhood information: Oostelijk Havengebied

Sporenburg is an artificial island that was built during the 19th century. The area owes its name to the use of railroad territory by the Dutch railroads. Since the 1990s the area has been redeveloped into a residential area. The neighbourhood has some architectural eye-catchers such as - the red bridges and The Sphinx, a massive residential complex which had to attract families with children to the area.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
