Full Renovation of an Extraordinary Loft for a Young Stock Broker

Full Renovation of an Extraordinary Loft for a Young Stock Broker

Completed by Standard Studio, this project is a full renovation of an 150 sqm attic, located in Amsterdam.

Project description: Walking through Amsterdam’s city centre is always a delight because of the beautiful architecture. Although we are often left with the urge to see inside the buildings. Luckily we have the opportunity to see a typical canal house which dates from 1752, and used to be a sugar refinery two and a half centuries ago. Standard Studio, an architecture and interior design firm from Amsterdam, did the full renovation and interior design for this monument on the unesco protected canals.

Situated on the Bloemgracht the loft house covers an area of 150 square meters. When the client, a young stock broker bought the house, it was completely covered in plasterboard, lowered ceilings and lots of tiny rooms without a clear function. The goals of Standard was to create the opposite; an open plan interior for the real ‘loft’ feel.

The apartment was completely gutted and given a new look, yet the traditional essence and structure still remained. The wooden beams create warmth and a sense of nostalgia, which, when combined with the modern design results in a harmonious beautiful interior. The materials used were all very basic; concrete, oiled oak and unfinished hot rolled steel. It gives a beautiful contrast with the plants, loose furniture and art.

In the front of the house, the facade side with a view on the Bloemgracht (meaning “flower canal”) the architects, Wouter Slot & Jurjen van Hulzen designed the living room and on a split level the bar and dining area. There’s a great kitchen made from mat powder coated steel with marble tops and perfectly integrated high-end equipment. On the backside of the kitchen wall they created a walk-in closet and bathroom with 2 rainfall showers. This all together is one of two functional units in this open plan layout. The other multi functional unit is created in the corner next to entrance and holds the sauna, spa, shower and restroom.

The remaining space is the bedroom, office and bathing area (with freestanding bath) in one. A multi functional big black book is holding the library, the bed and art. And it has the possibility to close it all off with sliding doors nicely detailed away in this bespoke furniture piece.

The end result is a stunning, contemporary loft that embraces the original character of the building. Together with Modern Vintage, the furniture supplier, and Eginstill, who made the kitchen and some bespoke items, we could say that all three combined, turn out to be a match made in heaven.
