MINIMALIST LOFT SURROUNDED BY CANALS
AN APARTMENT THAT CAPTURES THE BEAUTY OF AMSTERDAM’S CITY CENTRE WHILE ALSO CONVEYING A SENSE OF FREEDOM. CO-RESPONSIBLE: BORA BASIC.
“The aim was to create a modern building with a bright, clean interior”, states interior designer Willem Benoit in explanation of the architectural concept behind the renovation of the period property alongside a canal in Amsterdam’s Old Town. Inside is an apartment that aims to offer the calmest of atmospheres as a contrast to the hustle and bustle on its doorstep. After all, the red-brick house on the Prinsengracht canal is in one of the Dutch capital’s most famous and most popular districts. The results of the complete refurbishment are all-round impressive: open-plan rooms combine with expansive window areas to give a sense of home living shaped by freedom and light. And at the heart of it all, a sleek kitchen island with BORA Basic, a beautifully designed, compact system comprising a cooktop with an integrated extractor fan.
