Want to stay close to the water in Amsterdam? You can’t get much closer than the latest space from Yays Concierged Boutique Apartments. Built inside an old crane that operated from 1958 to 1979, this unique apartment puts you right on the water. The Dutch designer Edward van Vilet is responsible for the odd-ball structure, keeping a bit of the utilitarian feel with exposed steel beams and thick wood floors. The three stacked shipping containers that compose the apartment deliver a total of 430 square feet of space, while windows offer incredible views of the IJ. Inside you’ll find two bedrooms, a modern bath, and a fully equipped kitchen.
