Design firm in Amsterdam Kromhouthal

Design firm in the Kromhouthal, Amsterdam

Our industrial design studio is located in the Kromhouthal, a great creative location, just on the shore of the river IJ in Amsterdam, close to the Central Station.

The location has a rich history, starting in 1908 when the family Goedkoop started shipbuilding activities on the site. After they developed a succesful engine, they needed a factory and in 1925 built a manufacturing plant for diesel engines. In 1966 the factory was sold to Stork, who started to manufacture equipment for the food industry in the plant. In the 80's the industrial activities were moved to other locations and the factory was empty for a long time.

In 2009 the social housing corportation Eigen Haard bought the site, re-named the site to 'De Overkant' and transformed the old factory into a creative hotspot.
