Colouring domestic life

Two parents and a child live in an apartment in the centre of Amsterdam. The story lies within the assignment: the lady of the house loves to cook, but the kitchen is hidden. The living room lies in the dark middle of the house while an unused loggia flanks the facade. We proposed to remove the loggia and move the storage space to the middle of the plan. The kitchen becomes the pivotal area in front of the storage space and the living room moves to the facade. Thus the sitting room is on the window side, the large kitchen has an overview into the room and the complete width of the space is used. Colours mark the different parts of the room, the kitchen, entrance and door to the sleeping room. Each of the colours is composed of a wide range of materials.

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.
