House between two streets

Coming from the commercial world of interiors, my first job as a self-employed architect came to be an intensive collaboration with a building-dedicated photographer. Precise up to the millimeter, we worked on a conversion scheme for a derelict print shop, his sumptuous urban residence. Stabilizing steel frames, grounded in a newly-poured concrete cellar tub and an additional patio lightwell were inserted. The oblong classical Amsterdam house (with in the 1970’s illegally eradicated garden) was again split into two houses, one large town house and a smaller rental accomodation. Working on the sanitary cores on all floors, built-in furniture elements and all kinds of custom-made solutions, it was a challenging project, which turned out just awesome – also due to the technical crafts of the self-building photographer.

A hard & good start.

Thank you, Peter!
