Standing shoulder to shoulder since 1614 on the most storied stretch of the Western canal belt, Herengracht 134 and Herengracht 136 are complementary adjoining canal houses blessed with a delightful secret: their extensive communal gardens.
Number 134 is known locally as D’Beeck after it was acquired by the merchant Lucas van Beeck in the 17th century. In 1750, following renovations to the property, a descendant had the family name proudly carved on the building’s flat, stone façade.
In architectural terms, the grand, high-ceilinged main entrance hall to number 136 is the property’s undeniable pièce de résistance, featuring astonishing original ornamentation, marble masonry and unique wallpapers.
Both properties have been modernised to the highest possible standard with utmost care for their original charms, creating light, contemporary office space with a majestic pedigree.
The Collection feels like home to us. The beautiful design, the friendly hosts, the history of the building, the open spaces to collaborate and the wonderful amenities really add to our team member experience. We love it here!
The spacious meeting rooms and hospitality at The Collection were a real draw for us, alongside the building's heritage.
The central location distinguishes us from 'magic circle' firms on the outskirts of Amsterdam.
When clients enter our office space, they’re astonished because nobody expects something like what we have here, in the heart of the city. An office in the heart of the city was always my dream. It’s really important for employee branding to have a nice office space where people feel at home. The Collection could provide us with this, with the location and all the amenities that come with the membership.
