NIEUWE PRINSENGRACHT

These bright and airy garden room spaces form the ideal home office and lounge within the center of Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam

Year: 2019
Size: 3
0 m2

Program: small residential renovation

For a couple living in a town house on the Nieuwe Prinsengracht in the city center of Amsterdam, HOP designed and renovated a part of the ground floor. With new MHB steel window frames this interior space becomes gets bathed in daylight. The living area features a similar steel and glass skylight, which is controlled automatically, and the space to the garden forms a gradual transition between indoor and outdoor space.

Situated on the North side of the building, the ground floor now forms a perfect hideaway during hot summers and can be used as an office or lounge area.
