Renovation of a house in Rotterdam

After the consolidation of the building foundations, we’ve designed a radical opening of the inner space by removing a floor structure and inserting steel reinforcements, a steel balcony and a minimal steel staircase. The facade towards the garden has been opened for maximum light(ness). The existing structures have been kept all around the void and the heritage of the building has been preserved by accepting the decadent look of the back facade and the attic walls. With a limited budget, we have transformed a typical row house into a unique interior.
