Renovated Interiors

Kitchen Renovation by CUBE Architecten

CUBE Architecten has renovated the interior of the Amsterdam apartment. The owner of the apartment is a cookery expert, so the main task for the architects – Pieter van der Pot and Marloes van Heteren – was to develop a distinctive original kitchen, which had to be not only for cooking but for communication with the guests also. The solution was to make an extended room of white Corian, accommodating all the basic functionality of the kitchen together with a spacious dining table. The tabletop gently curves down and goes into the console dining table for 6 persons, effectively hovering in the air without any support. The architects have used to advantage the peculiarity of the apartment – different-level height. On the highest level the podium lounges with windows facing the canal is located, a bit lower there is a working part of the kitchen, and at the very bottom a dining area with access to the patio is located.

Kempart Loft in Belgium by Dethier Architectures

The project of Dethier Architectures demonstrates an unusual transformation of industrial spaces into housing. The loft of the building, located in Liège (Belgium), was totally renovated according to the needs of the client and creative intentions of architects. The task was to create a living space in an abandoned industrial bakery for a couple with no children. At first the Kempart loft was cleaned from old unnecessary elements of design and then, on the resulting 154 sq. m of open area, the rounded modular unit with a unique design was placed. Inspired by the Airstream trailer’s aerodynamic aesthetic the unit with an aluminium skin has a round shape, painted in bright (orange, green) colors contrasting with the monochrome space apartment. Inside of it two bathrooms, utility room and bathroom are hidden as well as elements of the heating and ventilation systems. Artist Jean Glibert was responsible to select the bathroom areas’ saturated colors. The results of magical modifications you can see in the pictures below.

We often do not have enough fun in our life. We used to do everything according to the rules and plans. The architect David Hotson decided to remedy this situation by turning the space of renovated 19th-century penthouse in New York City into an amusement park for children and their parents. The first and the most remarkable thing have been added to the four stories building is a silvery tubular slide, made of polished stainless steel, spiraling down through all four stories and giving an exit only on the third floor and then at the very first floor. Of course, it is not the only way to travel between the floors. There is a beautiful white staircase that offers a slower path between floors, where you can enjoy many interesting playful details, including neon furniture and artwork. At the center of the building there is a well-like four-story entry hall that brings daylight down. This penthouse is a really brave architect’s decision and a wonderful work of art.
