It’s a crane gentry build in 1950, turned into an office in 2007. And it is sure a milestone in Dutch Architecture. Designed by Ontwerpgroep Trude Hooykaas (OTH) Kraanspoor, which translates to “crane track,” is a suspended office three meters above the existing concrete gantry.  The area was well known as Amsterdam’s main wharf: NDSM.  Now it houses offices as well. Here is more. If you take the NDSM ferry, from Central Station, you are almost there.
