Transformatorhuis

Blue Room

Klönneplein 2

The Transformatorhuis is located adjacent to the Westerliefde (Green Room) and directly across from the Gashouder (Red Room). The thin high windows and wooden roof construction give the location its intimate and elegant atmosphere. In 1904 a watergas factory first settled in this location, years later it was used as a 'transformerwerplaats' by Amsterdam's energy company. You'll find the Blue Room track in the Transformatorhuis.
