    We explore a converted 20th-century industrial building in Amsterdam, by lauded Dutch design practice Studio Piet Boon.

    Internationally-renowned for their inspired, multi-disciplinary design work, Studio Piet Boon’s Amsterdam Residence is the studio’s latest residential project. Situated in a leafy cul-de-sac in the heart of Amsterdam, the existing building’s bones have made way for a secluded terrace for a creative client. 

    The building’s quirky characteristics created opportunity to reinvent the entire design of the home, reflecting the owner’s admiration for curated artwork and objects.

    Hidden among the trees, the home is filled with bespoke items and mementos from the client’s travels. With a focus on the beauty behind these unconventional pieces, Studio Piet Boon have implemented a subdued colour scheme, consistent throughout the home; acting as a perfect backdrop for the client’s collection.

    With this target in mind, integrated and wall-mounted storage frames various rooms throughout, playing home to an assortment of books, dinnerware and sculptures. 

    Shifting the kitchen and living area to the top floor brought added functionality to the terrace, along with optimum privacy above street level. The outdoor entertaining space evokes a sense of seclusion; its tall trees reflecting playful light patterns and shadows. Wall niches and custom elements such as the built-in staircase bannister are a nod to the home’s tailored design.

    The bedroom features resin flooring by Senso, complemented by stained timber cabinetry. The master ensuite showcases a sunken bath, reminiscent of a Hammam (a traditional Turkish steam bath), alongside Piet Boon tapware. The gentle layering of materials and textures in the bathroom match the relaxing atmosphere of the rest of the home.

    The Amsterdam Residence demonstrates Studio Piet Boon’s testament to quality, timeless design, delivering a home that perfectly encapsulates the client’s character.
