SINGEL 7, AMSTERDAM | THROUGH THE DUTCH DOOR…

Amsterdam – renowned for its narrow properties that are often considered cute and dainty by tourists, is actually home to a 1-metre wide slender façade called Singel 7.

Whilst a majority of the Dutch houses are not as tiny as this one, there is a common theme amongst many of the dwellings within the city’s residential area and this is simply because of the 17th-century law stating that locals were taxed by the width of their properties; causing many to cleverly design the narrowest houses they possibly could.
