Hangar Amsterdam | North area

Hangar Amsterdam is located at Amsterdam North and the latest establisment by Tim Immers, owner of restaurant Moustache and Jop Pollmann is build out of corrugated sheet and with the look of an old hangar perfectly fitting it's industrial surroundings.

Not only was I amazed how well the colours of the steel were chosen, the lamps, and even the linen tablecloth all perfectly blended together. The interior is designed by Stella Willing is a perfect combination of rawness and style, beautiful chairs and tables with marble tabletops while the mirrored walls, the old wooden cabinet, doors and copper bar with barstools found in Paris bring in some warmth. Hangar is open for coffee and pie, but also for lunch, dinner and cocktails till late. The terrace has a lounge area with a view on the IJ.

LOFT Amsterdam | Eastern Docklands area

LOFT Amsterdam recently opened their doors in one of the industrial buildings at KNSM laan on the KNSM island, another great addition to the few selected stores in the same street like Sissy Boy Homeland, Pols Potten and children department store Keet aan Huis. The Eastern Docklands is a great not to crowded residential area. As the formal harbour of Amsterdam, the North America line is still departing from here and many huge cruise ships can be seen from time to time. The many old industrial buildings and warehouses are perfectly blending with modern architecture on the different peninsulas and make the area to what it is.

LOFT Amsterdam offers a great selection of Scandinavian design and home accessories, Dutch design and fair trade home and fashion brands. In the basement larger interior items are placed in a home-like setting. More pictures can be found at my Interior design blog Vosgesparis
