Expat studio Amsterdam

The owners of a monumental building in Amsterdam Center wanted to make the ground floor pleasantly habitable for expats. In the existing situation, the space was equipped with a ceiling and divided into several small rooms. For the benefit of spaciousness and functionality, the entire first floor has been renovated according to a design by FELD.

Perfect puzzle

The project continued to look for smart design solutions to practically deal with the limited space of the studio. The naturally darker parts of the studio include the bathroom and part of the kitchen. The bathroom is connected to a wardrobe that is built into a semi-closed sleeping unit. To keep access to this unit functional and to create a feeling of openness, it is equipped with doors.

The design uses a calm palette of basic materials and colours. The result is an experience of spaciousness and functional comfort on just 35 square meters in the heart of Amsterdam.

Creative solutions for limited space

“The ground floor of our building had to be made suitable for rental to expats. The small spaces made the options seem limited. However, FELD came up with six very different ideas. Each option has been thoroughly thought through, with creative solutions for the limited space. Ultimately, we were able to choose the perfect layout together and there is a beautiful studio. The neutral colors, a practical layout, fixed built-in elements and the preservation of the classic Amsterdam ceiling beams make every expat want to live here. Thank you Francine for realizing this great (lucrative) studio.”
