Gallery: Black Pearl House: Stunning Dutch Renovation is Harmoniously E...

The new windows are placed in a contemporary style, but the originals are left intact and painted black.

The reworking of the dilapidated building was anything but modest. The ground floor is now an open-air wood shop that leads to a bamboo garden patio in the back. The narrow, white stairs open to the main living floor, where a tremendous amount of work took place to open up the floor’s interior. The outer brick walls are left intact, displaying the history of the building. The entire project is rife with an endless amount of details and design quirks that are harmoniously eclectic. The smooth white stairs glow from behind against the raw brick wall, and white spaces jump to black to designate the large open space. As the floors are now all connected, daylight can reach down to the lower floors from a skylight.
