Canal House by i29
Ewout Huibers

i29 has converted a neglected 17th-century canal house in Amsterdam into a bright home with unexpected views and room for discovery.

The project sees the design of the interior created to highlight different areas in colour to give new perspectives. Original details are variously exposed or hidden in colourful rooms – to create unexpected sight-lines and a spatial experience, the different spaces are connected by allowing colour or finish to continue from one space to another.

The kitchen space on the ground floor is finished in white concrete, light walls and a custom-designed oak kitchen and dining table, and is visually connected to the study room above through a grey stained oak wall, which also forms a beautiful entrance to the rooms above. The same grey continues in the living room in a fabric wall covering for acoustics, while beyond the bedrooms and bathroom areas similarly display equal attention to colour and flow.

This project has been longlisted in the house interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
