Spatial – interior design

In one of The Hague’s most charming districts, Zeeheldenkwartier, a former domestic science school has been transformed into 12 roof garden townhouses. You can still see the design of the original building in the square windows and robust white plastered construction, which are typical elements of the Nieuwe Zakelijkheid (New Objectivity), a Dutch modern architectural movement that started in the 1920s and continued into the 1930s. The roof structure, designed by Studioschaeffer, has been completely renewed, which lends it a unique feel. 

 

The first floor has an open layout, with no walls or partitions, allowing the interior to align with the client’s vision. An open void connects the ground and first floor in a unique way, creating a seamless transition between the two levels. Natural light from the roof plays a significant role in the spatial architecture and directly affects the ambience of each townhouse. We focussed on creating connection and interaction between the interior and exterior spaces, with a spacious custom-designed living kitchen that overlooks the front terrace. This enhances the perception of an expansive living area. The cabinets are enriched with warm materials, evoking a comfortable atmosphere that balances the concrete and steel elements in the house.
