Dutch design studio i29 interior architects has recently remodelled a garage space in Amsterdam’s area de Pijp, into a spacious house. The interior of the space features large roof skylights, creating an abundance of natural light, despite the space’s former use.
The 230 m² interior is finished in a simple material palette. The repetition of rectangular rough oak wooden surfaces contrasts against the stark white walls, black surfaces and grey cast flooring.
The custom designed kitchen includes a large wooden sliding door to cover integrated storage areas, with a contrasting black cooking island in front. Built-in cabinets and a fireplace have the same characteristics and contrast in materials. Wooden walls from top to bottom with built-in doors are marking the entrance to the more private areas such as bed and bathrooms.
Outdoors is a patio in between the living and master bedroom. In order to connect inside and out, i29 interior architects designed a 20 m² hand knotted carpet with a natural mossy pattern. The excess of natural light in combination with the soft layer of green and beige resembles the outdoor experience while being inside.
