The client, A bachelor required a "chill out" entertaining zone for friends and guests, with the option of renting the property out. Only part of the original Dutch house remained, and the original façade was completely bricked up by various ad hoc additions done by previous owners.
It was our job to create more light and rationalise the spaces, while still retaining as many original features as possible. E.g. The black and white floor tiles at the main entrance.
To link the original stucture we added a new wing to accommodate the additional bedrooms. The new internal spaces with the fine teak glazed screens, maximises the bedroom areas and nods respectfully at classical japanese architecture.
