This house is located in a relatively new residential area in the former Amsterdam Docklands It is a terraced house with a patio consisting of 3 floors and a rooftop garden.
The client wished to change the floorplan, functions and layout within the house, to create more space and allow more light into the interior.
The house has only windows in the front façade. To allow more daylight, the closed shaft was opened up and fitted with stairs allowing more space and creating an inner courtyard, filled with daylight. An interior floor plan without walls gives a sense of openness and freshness.
