Here's some more information from i29:


This single-family apartment for four people is situated in a stately building in southern Amsterdam, NL.

Home 07 by i29

The original structure, with rooms for staff, a double hall and long hallways with lots of doors has been transformed into a spacious, transparent dwelling full of light and air.

A kitchen in combination with cabinets from floor to ceiling has laser-cut front panels, all spray painted white.

This pattern results in a dynamic mixture of open and closed cabinets, the holes also function as integrated handgrips.

The transparency of the object’s skin gives depth to the volume which is complimented by furniture like the Grcic chair one.

An atrium with open staircases brings natural light from a large roof light into the living area.

Along the open staircase a wall of two stories high is covered with clear pine wood, and connects the two levels.

    Love the limit of natural wood and white with black furniture ascents and the child friendly staircase but am less enthusiastic about the holes.

  • ste

    nice atmosphere with light wood and withe surfaces… not sure about the certain form of the holes… a bit to cold and futuristic for my taste… technically ok but not spectacular in times where cnc cutted patterns are as present as sunlight… would love to see something more organic and more comfortable cutted into these panels… something supporting the great atmo of the light spaces instead of just look good…

  • Sander

    Nice and simple, great light, I like it. Not sure about the holes though, I think it could have done without them.

  • Zaedrus

    Good. Now, some color please.
    Don’t dish me any purist donkey plop either.

  • sznne

    Fantastic! The graphic pattern integrated in the whole design is really good.
    Love the holes in combination with this wooden wall.

  • It seems I’m alone in this opinion, but I love the holes! Definitely agree with Zaedrus, though. Get some color up in here! The white/black/pine motif is all good and well for the photos, but I can’t imagine actually living in this space as-is. I think Jaime Gili’s artwork would look pretty sweet in this space, actually: http://bit.ly/aBPvPk

  • I like the integration of the form. On the other hand – it too empty, cold and minimalistic for me.

    It’s not the right home for a child. They must interact with loads of objects to develop.

  • + it would be a nightmare to clean all the dust….

  • I like the idea of the cabinets with laser-cut holes across their surfaces which double as handles – they also make the only decoration in the space, without which I would say that this interior is frighteningly dull. I also like the wide use of clear pine wood – it is the only element that warms the interior. But I wonder – do those people know what coziness mean? And if they do – don’t they lack it?

  • good combination of white + wood – not sure about the form of the holes either – but I like the idea to make some of the cupboard-interior shining through and using it as doorhandles – wonder how long the white floor stays white – might be a great “drawing playground” for kids ;-)
    anyway – good job!

  • So cool! The materials are perfect. Evidently a home never stays the way it looks in the architects pictures. They will add their own colour, arts and objects. The cleaner the better as a start.

  • absolutely love it. love the shapes and i actually think it add a lot to the space.
    i think it is very young cool and fresh design and couldn’t find anything wrong with it. the only minor thing that i would avoid is to make a storage cup’d opposite the bath.

  • Bert

    I think the house is so clean and empty for the photografy.

  • ioftigr

    Absolutely no color needed. Even the black from the range pops in these photos. Something no one would even notice otherwise.
