1920’s Amsterdam courtyard house

A typically Dutch design assignment: the renovation of a courtyard house form the 1920’s. Located in the vibrant family neighborhood Watergraafsmeer in Amsterdam, this project is all about combining 2 apartment in a courtyard building block into one family house.  Our mission is to open up the interior of both apartments naturally combining them to one warm family home.

The design has a strong focus on using natural daylight form above combined with the stairs to create a flow of light down to the core of the house.

The column of light reinforces the contact from floor to floor really combining them as a whole.

Expected completion: November of 2017.
