dutch firm i29 interior architects transform a former rental apartment into a fresh and spacious loft in de pijp, amsterdam. originally, the apartment had many rooms and scarce daylight. therefore, the main objective was to achieve maximum use of natural light and to create a spatial experience for the tenants. the interior is executed in a simple material scheme of large oak wall panels, white plastered walls, dark blue furniture pieces and light grey synthetic floors.

i29 integrated a wall cabinet that organizes the living, kitchen and dining area in one large gesture. several functions have been integrated in this piece such as storage space, a television cabinet and a custom designed kitchen which can be hidden behind two large sliding panels. a contrasting black kitchen island combined with a large high table is placed in the middle and divides the space. furniture pieces in black and dark blue tones are in contrast with the light airy space. the top floor, including two bedrooms and a bathroom, is finished all white in combination with the rough oak flooring.
