Contemporary House Breukelen, The Netherlands
Utrecht-based architectural practice, Zecc Architecten, have designed the House Breukelen project. Completed in 2012, the contemporary family home, a former stables can be found in The Netherlands.
The property was a monumental coach house annex stable built in 1760, which has since been converted into a spacious contemporary home by the design team.
A mishmash of built curiosities from previous renovations was removed. In this way the historical elements and large spaces were returned. The stable, still complete with hay racks, stone troughs and iron cast horse heads, has been converted to be used as the main living room. The original tack room is now the entrance hall and the coach house has been converted into a spacious stylish kitchen.
Some high stall doors reappeared after the demolition. This has created a unique connection between living room and kitchen. A new contemporary staircase was placed as a modern addition. The staircase was given special interior design prominence because of the central position in the coach house. The exterior of the house is made of mirror smooth stucco and the interior is entirely made of solid oak. The central placement made it the hub of the house, daylight falls from the roof into the new kitchen. Upstairs the double hood with rough wooden trusses determines the atmosphere. The staircase creates a connection between the second living room with fireplace.
Adelto loves the contemporary stable conversion of this property.
