Industrial houses designed by Netherlands based architect, BogermanDill. They convert the former printing office in Amsterdam to the houses named House Pinck-Heerkens. Houses Pinck-Heerkens, former press office, located at Prinsengracht – one of Amsterdam’s most coveted streets. Architect BogermanDill renovated former industrial space to form a family residence, while preserving the original features like wood floors, low ceilings and I-beams.
To connect a four-room floor and brings together the main living space, BogemanDill creates a big hole in the middle of the house. The first and second stories are interconnected by a wooden staircase with no railing, and a floating staircase leads to the third floor, both in accordance with open-plan feel of the room. Because the voids cut through the floor of the house, two rooms joined by a floating bridge made of steel I-beams. Overall, the original features such as brick work and steel look caged windows contribute to an atmosphere somewhat reminiscent of a New York apartment.
