Needles to say, the interior of this apartment overlooking the IJ River in Amsterdam’s city centre was to be clearly orientated towards the water. By situating the sitting area and kitchen on the eastern side, the open expanse of water appears to form an integral part of the interior.

As a result, the spacious lower floor of the apartment that was finished in 2010, could be designed to as open as possible, with doors only being placed where it was strictly necessary. Instead of a traditional sitting area, the large dining table and coordinated seating represent a striking alternative.
