Photos of 13 neighbours’ apartments


Susanne Gilsing, an anaesthetist’s assistant from Utrecht, knocked on the doors of her neighbours on the Tuyllkade in Utrecht to ask them if she could take a photo of them in their living room, and twelve agreed.

Including the photo of her own apartment you now have a unique series documenting what thirteen Dutch families chose to do with more or less the same space. Use Flickr’s slideshow feature for the best effect.



  1. Hey Branco,

    Wat onwijs grappig om mijn eigen foto’s hier zo terug te zien. Ik ben nog maar net bezig met fotografie en het is natuurlijk altijd leuk om te zien dat anderen ook leuk vinden wat jij doet! Thanx!!

    Groet Susanne

  2. Very cool. I’d be interested in seeing a floor plan of the unit just to see what the families had to work with. Most used it as a living room, though one used it as a dining room.

    Also I like that many of the photos include the owners/tenants.
