“The bigger the better…” The façade of this listed property, built in 1615 on the most prestigious canal in the Netherlands by the wealthy merchant Balthasar Coymans, is an impressive 14 metres wide.
Over the years, in accordance with changing fashions, a balcony and ornamental plasterwork have been added, and the original stepped gable has been replaced with a curved pediment. Various local governors followed in Coymans’ footsteps, and from 1808 to 1818 the financial institution Associatie-Cassa (now the Kas Bank) operated here. Later in the 19th century, the property housed Dominico Arata, the Italian merchant and consul of Sardinia – hence the building came to be known colloquially as “Sardinia”. Until October 2016, it served as the headquarters of the Dutch Labour Party.
Herengracht 54 features a modern extension at the back, including ample office space and an elevator for accessibility and convenience. The historic, canal-facing facade combines classic elements and contemporary offices for the best of both worlds. There is a beautiful view of the Singel through the Korsjespoortsteeg. A little further along, the Herengracht intersects the Brouwersgracht and the bustling Haarlemmerstraat, which abounds with shops, restaurants and cafés of every stripe. All human life is here.

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.
