Characteristic home built in Rotterdam in the 1930s.
We wanted to do something to accentuate the spacious and open layout of the house. We re-joined the various living spaces by breaking down the walls between them. This, together with the kitchen, is meant to reflect a sense of totality – hence the merging of the worktop and the dining table. In addition, the tailor-made deep lounge sofa and footstool lend a sense of luxury to the living room. The black wood is used in all the rooms to help the interior form an elegant whole.
Colours and materials
We intentionally used dark colours and materials with a masculine character. Think of such elements as black woodwork, grey walls and windows with external blinds. The golden accents provided by accessories were implemented to soften the overall impression.
“The dark tones create an atmosphere of snugness and security, together with a sense of privacy”
