We were asked to take care of the interior of the second, third and fourth floors of an authentic canal house on the Amsterdam Prinsengracht.
Our clients had clear ideas. They preferred a relatively dark interior.
Naturally we took these requests into account, and customization became priority in the plan we presented. Colors, lighting and furniture were meticulously matched to each other, creating unity in each room. We opted for a wooden herringbone floor and steel doors, which gave the interior a chic but contemporary character.
Our main focal points and challenges were the master bedroom, the landing and bathroom on the third floor. The existing master bedroom was relatively small, mainly because there was a small bathroom in this room. This had to be reorganized.
We chose to place the bathroom in the room in front of the main bedroom. This creates a walk-in shower that you can enter from the bedroom. Now this large bedroom has really got the look of a hotel suite.
The landing on the third floor was very cramped and clogged. The request of our clients was to create more space here. We were able to create this by making one area out of the two adjacent rooms. We also placed storage in this room. Additionally, we put in a skylight, turning it into a nice bright room. Because we breached these two rooms, we can now create a larger bathroom here. This was also an important request of our client.
Because of the 3D visualisations we made, the client got a good idea of how their interior will become.
