“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.
