In the Dutch city of Haarlem the old ‘Weeshuis der Doopsgezinden’ (Baptist Orphanage) has been remodeled into several city apartments. The building, dating back to 1634, is located in the very heart of the historic city center.
The apartment is not very big, about 75 square meters, which is about 810 square feet. But because of the high ceilings, the light and the clever lay-out it feels like a lot more. The ceiling is still pretty much original with exposed beams. This allowed the architect to create a small room/entresol overlooking the living room and kitchen. To get acces to this, he designed a modern and basic flight of stairs which do very well in these historic surroundings.
The kitchen was designed especially for this flat. It’s woodwork is finished in absolute white. The surface is solid granite slate. Together with the top of the bill appliances brands, this kitchen is a dream for wannabe chefs.
