All the hallways and separate rooms in the 200 square meter upper floor of a stately building in the Old South of Amsterdam were first completely removed. The supporting walls were replaced by a row of columns, affording wide views of this spacious upper area. Around the perimeter of this area is a wall of cabinets, which serve as kitchen-, library-, work-, study-, and bedroom cabinets, as needed. These also provide access to the balconies outside, where there is a roof terrace. The bedroom is separated from the central area by sliding doors. The dining table, chairs and kitchen furnishings were also designed by the bureau.
