Located in the eastern part of the old city center of Amsterdam, two old overhead doors used to hide an almost square space with a courtyard in the back. This “Eastern Islands” neighborhood has a rich history of old shipping wharfs on the waters’ edge, and which today still retains a warm village-like character.Save this picture!New Lay outThe conversion from car-garage to a family living space, makes an innovative use of this industrial plot. An open floor plan creates a modern Y-shaped living area, with sympathy to the heritage of the original building.Save this picture!© Matthieu van EkThe plot is divided into three zones: kitchen, living & library, and the children’s living areas. The kitchen and living spaces are located on the lighter, busier street side of the house, while the children and adjacent bedrooms are in the more private space at the rear.Save this picture!© Matthieu van EkThe peaceful courtyard at the rear provides a welcome retreat from city life, which is easily accessed through glass doors. Save this picture!© Matthieu van EkIn addition to the spatial principle, the limited budget was an important part of the design process. Most of the construction elements added have been smartly designed to allow resources to be concentrated on the kitchen and new facades.Save this picture!© Matthieu van EkResult is a kitchen which is dominated by a six meter long marble work-top, together with a total of ninety original steel “blass grune” window frames. Untreated concrete floors, textured plaster work and steel door and window frames provide a sympathetic reference to the industrial history of this now modern living space.Project gallerySee allShow lessInaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial Reveals Official List of 2015 ParticipantsArchitecture NewsZaha Hadid Architects Win Danjiang Bridge Competition in TaiwanArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Hoogte Kadijk, 1018 Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
