A successful transformation
Jun 28, 2010

This apartment in Amsterdam, designed by Dutch interior architects from i29, is the result of the wonderful transformation of a home full of diverse spaces into a coherent and spacious dwelling.

A kitchen in combination with cabinets from floor to ceiling has laser-cut front panels, all spray painted white. This pattern results in a dynamic mixture of open and closed cabinets, the holes also function as integrated handgrips. The transparency of the object's skin gives depth to the volume which is complimented by well selected furniture. An atrium with open staircases brings natural light from a large roof light into the living area.

Along the open staircase a wall of two stories high is covered with clear pine wood, and connects the two levels. Upstairs the master bedroom is situated next to a large bathroom with a finish of structured tiles, glass, and wooden cabinets.
