Architects are always on the lookout for new materials, shapes, textures and technologies that they can use to create new designs. Contemporary homes need this creative thinking in order to offer customized solutions for every client. Duivendrecht-based architectural practice i29 Interior Architects were bold enough to use laser cutting technologies to create a stunning array of geometric designs throughout the single-family apartment.
Known as the House 07 project, this home in southern Amsterdam used to be a place where rooms for staff, a double hall and long hallways disguised its true potential. With a creative approach, architects managed to transform it into a spacious, light-filled place where the family can go about their business in a serene atmosphere. The kitchen is where laser cuts are most visible. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets displaying white painted laser cut front panels have integrated hand grips, inducing the idea of function meets modern design.
Architects describe details that created the fabulous atmosphere seen in the photos below:
“The transparency of the object’s skin gives depth to the volume which is complimented by furniture like the Grcic chair one. An atrium with open staircases brings natural light from a large roof light into the living area. Along the open staircase a wall of two-storeys high is covered with clear pine wood, and connects the two levels. Upstairs the master bedroom is situated next to a large bathroom with a finish of structured tiles from Patricia Urquola, glass, and wooden cabinets.”
