The studio for a fashion designer is a free standing building in the centre of Amsterdam, direct related to a canal.

VILLA

Located on the edge of a new district in an average street, the villa seems to hide behind a closed front. In this one extended wall the entrances to the house, the garden and the garage have been placed. The peak-shaped copper roof is constructed in a way that it appears to float above the wall. The interior of the ground floor, with the exception of the cloak room and stairs, is one large space. There is a door leading to the garden from the open kitchen. The garden’s main terrace is on the south side.

The moss-covered roof of the garage extends the garden optically. The southeastern corner, in the back of the house, has a glass extension on both levels which allows of an undisturbed view of adjacent meadows.

Apartment Herengracht

Renovation of an apartment in Amsterdam, formerly used as an office. The famous Dutch canals were drawn into the apartment by replacing the existing facade structure, thus becoming part of the living space as well as the public space outside. The living space is folded around the kitchen and bathing and sleeping area, allowing the light to flood throughout the apartment. This ensures a light and open character which is particularly desirable in an old building that is reincarnated for a new life.
