American norms require more space for car than for bedroom. How about Amsterdam?

«Odds are, your bedroom is smaller than your car’s: your city nearly requires it to be», this infographic explains (via Herbert Tiemens). Perhaps so in the US or Canada - but how about Amsterdam?

This implies that the required space for car parking may vary from 7.2 to 18.2 m2 per new house. Or 1.4 to 3.6 times the minimum size of a bedroom. Of course, most bedrooms will be larger than the minimum 5 m2. That said, your bedroom may very well be smaller than the required car space.
