Dutch design studio i29 Interior Architects transformed a garage in Amsterdam’s de Pijp district into a sophisticated house with stark white walls, dark furniture and a carefully selected artwork. The former garage now has a skylight that provides an abundance of natural light - and it's almost impossible to guess the space's previous function.
The 230-square-meter living space features a custom designed kitchen with a black cooking island, built-in cabinets and a large sliding door that hides generous storage areas. Bedrooms are separated from the living room with wooden walls and built-in doors that offer an optimal level of privacy. The rest of the house features large open spaces, and the living room is demarcated with a slight denivelation.
The patio is situated between the living room and master bedroom. In order to provide a stronger connection between the interior and exterior, the architects designed a 20-square-meter hand-knotted carpet that has a mossy pattern.
