in collaboration with furniture designer paul timmer, dutch studio heren 5 architects has designed the interior of a loft in the north of amsterdam. in this single-side oriented loft situated on the ground level, the team has fully used the width of the space by placing the common areas by the large window, while the private housing functions are hidden from the eyes of the passers-by.
the architects have used the extra high ceiling of 3,5 meters to place the bed on top of the kitchen, creating a maximum of spaciousness. an extra bed can be pulled out from under the platform, to provide a sleeping place for guests.
the large interior unit is realized in a subtle palette of birch wood and white corian. the diamond edge detailing, designed by paul timmer, gives the design its unique look.
