For a British family with two teenage children, HOP designed the complete renovation of a three-story apartment near the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. The house had not been taken care of for many years and was in dire need of a new layout, new electrics / plumbing, new interior finishes + furniture and the restoration of existing ornament around doors and ceilings.
One enters the apartment on the third floor where the kitchen, dining room and living room are located. The kitchen is carefully detailed with wood moldings around the cabinets in two different colors: oak with a dark blue finish and natural oak cabinets from floor to ceiling on the back wall containing the ovens and refrigerator. A special quartzite stone with a strong marble-like appearance adds to the vibrant atmosphere. The natural materials are complemented by brass details such as Buster and Punch handles and light fixtures imported from England.
The kitchen is carefully detailed
Custom-made closets in bedrooms and stairwell
The fourth floor is (almost) entirely for the teenage boys who recently moved to Amsterdam with their parents. They have a private bathroom with bathtub and each a spacious bedroom with a large custom-made closet/desk. This floor also contains a private office space on the street side of the house.
On the fifth floor are the master bedroom and guest room. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. The guest bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom accessible from the hallway. In the main bathroom, an integrated steam shower gives the owners the ultimate relaxing experience after a long day of hard work.
