Updates & News

Just a couple of more weeks until this unique monumental house in the city center of Amsterdam will be completely finished. The design will consist of a classy combination of modern and vintage materials, lighting and furniture. With a total of more than 300m2 and an entire back house with 4 floors of bedrooms and bathrooms, this house will become entirely future-proof. The steel stairs have just arrived so more exciting updates will follow 🙏🏼

On the south side of Amsterdam lies the Gaasperplas, a small lake that was dug in the 60's to make the nearby dike. On the shore of the lake we are working on a freestanding sustainable club house, made with a demountable wooden construction. The public ground floor is completely transparent and looks out over the beautiful bay, but at night it can be closed off by means of wooden shutters. The steep roof will house the offices and archives of the club house. Swipe right to see the beautiful view over the lake 📸.
We just reached 10k followers! Spring is in the air!Is there a better way to celebrate both than by cleaning the office's basketball court?Thank you all so much for following and we can't wait to share our next projects in the coming months!
It's been exactly one year since we've finished the interior and the exterior for @anookbakehouse in De Pijp in Amsterdam. In the original blueprints (swipe right) this facade contained curved glass with copper profiling. Over the years this detailing became lost and was replaced with more straightforward glass panels and wooden framing. We decided to bring back the original details: the angled corner on the left side was replaced for curved glass and the connection with the main window was made with a copper profile, almost as if it had never been changed. With a bright terra color for the windows and a light brown color for the stone this facade now pops up from other shops and cafes in the Ferdinand Bolstraat.
Monday morning update! In this new project we designed a kitchen for a new built house in Amsterdam Noord. Our clients were looking for a minimalist, Scandinavian style kitchen. We decided to build the kitchen around the staircase to the upper floors and we created a warm yet stylish atmosphere by combining oak wood cabinets with brushed steel counter tops. On the left side the kitchen literally curves into the living area and has a hidden door to a storage space below the stairs.
Four years ago we finished this unique project in the Wouwermanstraat near Museumplein. This deteriorated house was fully stripped and the top floor had to be completely rebuilt (and extended) in order to accommodate an open plan living space with a high ceiling. Three terraces completely surround the living areas with outdoor spaces; on the front, the back and on top. We wrapped the entire exterior of the top floor with one continuous wooden facade to make sure all three terraces have the same natural look and feel. Six bi-fold doors open up the kitchen / dining area to one of the three terraces and therefore connect inside to outside on the top floor. This house is a true oasis in the heart of Amsterdam Zuid.
Eight years ago we started HOP Architects with the idea that smart spatial choices within architecture and interior design, together with the use of natural materials, can ultimately lead to more sustainable habitats.Now, 142 projects in, we've worked on many different types of projects, in an increasingly larger area - ranging from Amsterdam to Paris and beyond! We couldn't be more excited for all the projects yet to come. Thank you for tagging along with us!
