The commission for the total renovation of a large ‘Amsterdam school’ style apartment offered the chance for a completely new interior layout and finish. The dark and constricted nature of the original apartment was changed completely and finished with a new wooden floor throughout and plain white walls. A new clever interconnection of spaces was introduced and it begins immediately in the hallway. This then continues throughout the apartment where new connections and links are made between enlarged rooms and the new bathrooms, kitchen and service areas.
The application of high quality modern materials, alongside classic detailing such as wall paneling, grand scale lobby and floor to ceiling height doors creates a contemporary but appropriate dwelling in the heart of the old city block.
