Carl & CarinaCarl & Carina embraced the ethos of don't move improve. Having lived in their top floor apartment in Amsterdam's de Pijp neighborhood for a number of years they were keen to stay but wanted their space to better fit and support their lives
Carl & Carina understood their brief when it came to making a brief
A home is an intimate design challenge - working with a clients often largest investment on spaces that will either support or frustrate their lives! This works best with open communication and an open mind. Carl & Carina understood this from the outset with a clear budget up front, a short list of practical requirements and an open mind on how to deliver on this!
Character in the corners
The small footprint and need to locate the kitchen, living , dining and work/craft space meant we needed an efficient organising system. We moved each function to the corners and loaned space from the center depending on activity. A new staircase to the roof terrace is a feature while still fitting calmly in the room. Holding this together was a simple material palette and an emphasis on natural light and nature
Sharp as a knife with none of the hard edges
For a compact home in the middle of one of Amsterdam's densest neighborhoods the sense of quiet calm and connection to nature is our favourite thing about this house
