The Gymnasium
by Robbert de Goede

Marcel van der Burg

Public vote winner for apartment interior of the year: Robbert de Goede has designed a new home in a former gymnasium in Amsterdam.

The studio brought in a flood of daylight with 10 skylights and a huge facade. The trusses were a gift from the building; the new steel structure is detailed accordingly.

A combination of new and used materials were selected for the finishes.

Important in the dynamics of the house are the long lines of sight. The split-level and glass facades make this huge space very liveable, intimate and a real home.
