The historic house on the canal in Amsterdam was built back in 1675 and during its long life managed to become outdated and pretty dilapidated. Recently, the house was renovated according to the project of studio i29 in their recognizable minimalist style and began to live a new life.

The architects got a typical Amsterdam “canal house”: a narrow facade with two windows, but three full-fledged floors, a basement, plus a charming attic behind an elegant Dutch pediment.

The architects kept all the authentic details: stone walls, stucco molding in places, fireplace, old plank floors, but otherwise made the interior extremely concise, modern and laconic, and color-blocking was chosen as the main artistic technique.

On the ground floor there is a kitchen space with access to the garden: white walls, laconic, custom-made, oak furniture. Behind it, behind green glass— is a guest room with its own bathroom and access to the garden. With an offset of half a floor, there is an office with a bold graphic solution. On the second floor there is a living room with a fireplace, a sofa and a separate corner for relaxing and reading, highlighted in soothing blue.

The third floor is completely given over to a bedroom with a large bathroom, a traditional Japanese bathtub and a free-standing sink made of wood to match. And in the roof of the attic there is a small corner for relaxing with soft mattresses and a view of the canal.

Externally unchanged, without additions and alterations – the house has retained the traditional scale, but has become part of modernity.
