Simple But Chic House A, Netherlands

Amsterdam-based design studio Laura Alvarez Architecture has completed the House A project. Completed in 2011, the property was completely renovated and redesigned. The contemporary apartment is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

According to the architects: “Bringing light inside and achieving spatiality were the two main objectives of the project. The apartment built in the 70s is located in a very quite and leafy area of Amsterdam.

“The southeast-orientated garden provides the contemporary house in the Netherlands with fantastic views and light conditions.

“The spaces have been very clearly organised: A wooden box separates day and night functions. It contains all the service spaces of the house such us storage, garderobe, WC, boiler, etc. By concentrating all this elements in a box, the living areas are wide and spacious.

“The bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms. It receives natural light from both sides. A small wooden window opens up towards the garden.

“All doors have been removed and replaced with sliding doors. By doing so, the user has the flexibility of opening and connecting all the spaces or closing them all.

“The old lowered ceilings have been removed and the old piping left visible, as a reminder of the past of this contemporary Netherlands property.”
