The best way to view the pictures is to use the links below.


In the large hangar of the former shipyard 70 studios for professional artists are available.
To qualify for a studio you must meet certain criteria. One is that you are an artist with a not too high income. If there is reason to do so, the managing foundation may deviate from the artist's requirement, if it concerns a craft that they think fit well within the NDSM-Loods concept..
There are not often studios available. That is why there is a waiting list. Those who would like to rent a workshop in the hangar can stay in contact with colleagues in the “loods” and ask to be tipped if a studio is to be released. NDSMLOODS

Three presentations of the studios. Some of them are artworks of their own.

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels.
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.

Hello Rob,
The way you cropped the main photo you have turned architecture into art with a strong visual impact. Maybe you never make any differences between the two, but I guess you understand what I mean. Function reduced to only form. Today you also made the usual black frames integrated parts of the art with the red messages on the side. The workshop photos are interesting complements showing us the original studios in this breeding ground for artists.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hallo Rob,
Een mooie close-up van dit artistieke legoblokje met twee verschillende ramen. Je kunt als kunstenaar een legoblokje schilderen, maar je kunt misschien nog wel beter schilderen in een legoblokje. De rood-oranje tinten zijn heel sprekend.

Hello Rob,

Well, you certainly fooled me!
When I looked at your first w/s it completely wrecked my impression of the main post!
The size, the position, the purpose, all altered in a flash!
You turned a wall and windows into something completely different; a work of art!

I enjoyed all your shots, not just because of their clarity and colours but also, for their explanation of the site.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Rob,
A perfectly judged graphical composition. The crop is ideally suited. Superb colour contrasts and excellent sharpness.

Bonjour Rob,

A première vue je croyais que c'était une pièce rouge de légo sur fond noir.L'orange et le noir sont très complémentaires et le minimalisme de l'ensemble est intéressant.



Hello dear Rob and have a nice time
and a happy new day
dynamic contrast between red and black
function reduced to any form
you turned a wall and a window
into a real art

Ciao Rob, lovely minimalist composition with beautiful geometry, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Ciao Rob
si tratta di una iniziativa molto importante per gli artisti che non sono ancora molto conosciuti, ma che vogliono proseguire la loro vita con l'arte.
Belle e interessanti le foto e la nota di accompagnamento.

Hi Rob,

Looking at the other photos, I know it is part of a modern structure. The point of view is showing the details of this section of a building. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Bravo et amitié

Bonjour, cher ami Rob,
Vous avez raison, la création de ces studios est des objets ou des oeuvres d'art, du moins, l'imagination des concepteurs est novatrice.
Comme à l'accoutumée, la présentation est soignée et signée Rob !

Hello Rob,
nice the view as the presentation of this art work as is placed in this black frame,bringing out its details as the contrast of the colours.Informative your note as well.


Hello, Rob!

Interesting and curious windows, that's really art! And the strong color of the painting makes the image very attractive! And the workshop is great to give us the idea of what the whole place looks like! Excellent job!

Hello Rob,

I like the subtle reflection in the lower window. Good sharpness & William of Orange would love this! Clever cropping and perfect density levels with solid blacks and clean un-muddied whites. Tfs!
