Ten years after the first intensive restoration, we were instructed by the new residents to redesign the canal house. The couple wanted lighter colors and a transparent design. The wish was also to create more living space in combination with a private sleeping floor. This has made the house brighter again. The existing kitchen changed color and we designed the bookcases and wardrobes in a sleek style. The first floor has been opened up with the help of a pivot door and a view through to the ground floor. The house is equipped with Domotics: curtains, light and heating can be operated remotely.
