MAISONETTE

Location:
A high-end apartment in a vibrant, up-and-coming area in Rotterdam: Rijnhaven District.

The interior:
This home consists of two floors with a galleried landing. The spaces are connected by a unique staircase. The staircase is built around a glass box containing greenery. The design was created especially for this home. It is an eye-catcher and an element that connects the spaces. Cabinets and corners were created in the home to display art objects. This gives the home a great deal of character and allows the objects to tell a story. The kitchen consists of one single piece of furniture that extends from the kitchen to the dining table. The kitchen cupboard is two stories high, due to the galleried landing. The theme of interconnectedness continues here. The master bedroom offers a view onto the galleried landing and of the cupboard thanks to one wall made of opaque glass. The walk-in closet is also equipped with glass doors, so that every space maintains a view of the other spaces.

Colours and materials:
The colours on the walls have been kept light, in contrast with the brown custom cabinetry. The doors and lighting consist of clean, straight shapes, contrasting with the organic shapes of the furniture. The marble is an element that unites the hard and the soft. The blue steel and the cast floor provide a sleek base.

“The galleried landing and the glass box contribute to a feeling of spacious and luxurious living”{:}
