This ground floor house in Amsterdam Old South was built in the early 20th century. The design specification included design and installation of a new modern kitchen and bathroom and spatial plan. Our design looked to open up the space by creating a living room with an open plan kitchen with minimal movements of piping installations and using one of the architectural features of the house being the beautiful high ceilings. Other project works included replastering and painting of walls, installing a new heating system, new electric wires and lighting plan, new timber floor.
Entering the central hallway, the updated plan allowed for an open kitchen and dining area/living room. It allows for natural light to go through the length of the house from the backyard to the front windows.
We designed and installed a new Italian style kitchen with white washed cupboard doors which brings warmth and coziness to the space. Natural stone tiles were placed as backsplash and flooring and marble kitchen top was installed which enhanced the feel. Small design features such as the door handles and mouldings added to the country warm feel of the space.
Initially, the toilet was placed opposite the door which with the new open plan became inadequate. With the new design we removed the old bath tub and transformed the area into a walk-in shower. The toilet was moved inside the bathroom and a sink was installed on its place. Natural stone tiles were also laid in the bathroom which complemented the kitchen design and a glass sink was also installed to add a sense of nature.
