“We aim for a transition from inside to outside, from the inner self to the living environment”
This charming villa in Baarn dating from 1903 had a traditional layout meaning that the beautiful width of the building could not be optimally experienced. Studio Jeroen van Zwetselaar was asked to help the house reach its full potential. Walls were broken through and the original large hall was partly integrating into the living room. The kitchen was given a central new place behind the ensuite doors in the former dining room. The hall was reduced in size and the staircase was ‘wrapped’ in wood, running from floor to ceiling. The attic floor was completely broken open and transformed into a loft-like space. These changes in combination with the new interior deisgn ensure that today, the full width of the building is utilised.
