This apartment is located in a beautiful part of Amsterdam. The owners had a clear idea about the renovation; they wanted to sleep at the back of the apartment and a spacious open kitchen. The old kitchen was very small and the bathroom and toilet were bordering the kitchen. They wanted to give the house an industrial look, but retain the original features such as the
en-suite doors and ornamental ceilings. After a period of planning and choosing materials, IJzersterk Interior Design has taken on management of the entire renovation because customers did not live in the Netherlands. This renovation was completed above the customers’ expectations.
The industrial steel kitchen designed by Anja Hesp was beautifully finished with a white Corian worktop and integrated Pitt cooking modules. To soften the hard material, Anja Hesp chose soft pink walls. The new radiator is very special, an old model fitting the house painted in silver-grey metallic.
A high counter gives you the feeling of sitting in a bar or restaurant.

A wall was removed between the living room and the former bedroom allowing a guest room with a sofa couch to be realized. The steel sliding doors ensure that the potential guests have privacy. The living room became a lot bigger and lighter.
The folding bed with built-in closet space is made of black oak by Dexter Interiorbuilders (just like other fitted wardrobes and custom-made cabinets in this house).
This used to be the kitchen and in this bedroom Anja had to make intelligent choices to make the most of the limited space. Anja Hesp invented an elevated bed with storage space underneath, giving you a wonderful view of the city from the bed and maximizing the use of the limited space.
A combination of old building materials (vintage tiles) with state-of-the-art elements such as the steel sink and the cranes of Alape and Boffi created the atmosphere in this bathroom. Being a small room, all the walls were smoothened, to make the room look more spacious. To enhance the spatial effect a wall sized mirror and a large window were created. The door was painted in the same orange color as the shower faucets.
