A Transformation: From Brick to Timber
Amsterdam House Gets a Full Makeover
A tiny house in Amsterdam got lucky to be chosen by a Dutch firm in getting a whole new look. From a brick home to a blackened timber house. Having said that this is a tiny home, it was improved on the inside too when the modern furniture saved a whole lot of space and made it more functional. And since nothing can go without some ecological parts nowadays, this home is also a proud solar-powered dwelling!
Despite its two-story appearance, the home includes three floors thanks to the addition of a mezzanine. “The roof lines were bound to restricted heights. By cantilevering the lower parts outside the main building volume, the upper level of the house increases,” wrote the architects. “A house with a high ceiling on every floor level and an extra attic is the result of this design feature. The extra win is a dry walk along the North facade while walking underneath the cantilevering roof part towards the entrance.”
