In Amsterdam, i29 Interior Architects transforms a former garage space into an airy residence

Amsterdam-based i29 Interior Architects has turned a former garage space into a spacious house naturally lit by large roof lights. Home 11 boasts a generous 230 square metres on one floor level; it is finished in a simple material palette. The repetition of rectangular rough oak wooden surfaces is in great contrast with the stark white walls, black surfaces and grey cast flooring.

The custom-designed kitchen includes a large wooden sliding door to cover integrated storage areas, with a contrasting black cooking island in front. Built-in cabinets and a fireplace have the same characteristics and contrast in materials. Wooden walls from top to bottom with built-in doors are marking the entrance to the more private areas such as bed- and bathrooms.

Outdoors is a patio in between the living room and master bedroom. In order to connect inside and out, i29 interior architects designed a 20-square-metre hand-knotted carpet with a natural mossy pattern. The excess of natural light in combination with the soft layer of green and beige resembles the outdoor experience while being inside.


i29 interior architects is capable of linking architonic components with intensive studies of surfaces that gain maximum impact through the use of a colour of typography. The firm represents a method in which architecture and interior architecture come together in a model combination.
