“An interior should not be beautiful in any archaic or trendy sense; it should perfectly represent its surroundings and residents”
This former dairy farm in the rural area around Utrecht was transformed into a spectacular residential home.
The division of this beautiful neck-gable 1670 canal house into three parts meant that it was full of asymmetry and very incoherent, feeling out of balance.
A close cooperation between Jeroen van Zwetselaar and artist Casper Faassen led to the creation of this gorgeous interior of the latter’s spacious semi-detached 1930’s house. It was neglected and in desperate need of lots of light, atmosphere and open spaces to create a pleasant atmosphere, restore it to its former glory and turned it into a wonderful family home.
Studio Jeroen van Zwetselaar had the exciting challenge of transforming a former cogwheel factory in the heart of Amsterdam into a timeless dwelling that plays with light, height and an enormous volume. It was a great challenge to maintain an open space with the presence of two staircases, without it becoming too restless.
This 1920s waterfront villa in Amsterdam was turned into a sustainable family home, in which inside and outside as well as old and new are connected.
The transformation and extension of this railway house is an ingenious manifestation of contrast and alternation.
This project is all about integration: the villa, the coach house, the garden and the residents’ personalities and lifestyle.
