Interieur Drie

From butcher shop to smart apartment

We are asked to transform a former butcher shop with large shop window directed to the street corner into an apartment for a family with a handicapped child. The large entrance hall provides space for the wheelchair. The kitchen and living room are placed at the street facade. A large door between the living room and the master bedroom connects the front of the apartment to the garden. When the door is folded open, it hides the sleeping area from the living space. Details of materials, such as the tiles and bare bricks, from earlier days have been kept visible.

About Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk

The office was founded in 2010 in Rotterdam. We design narrative architecture that tells the story of the assignment at hand. A story with different layers: that of the context, a response to building tradition, the wishes of our client, sustainable applications and technical opportunities. The architecture surprises with imagination. Our work reaches from transformations to public spaces like a Performative Space in Eindhoven, and from building a multi-family house in Amsterdam to researching our practice and writing stories about it.
