amsterdam delight

The apartment is situated in a former distribution centre for the South Holland Brewery from The Hague. Until the mid-twentieth century, this was one of the most renowned breweries in the Netherlands, it even received the Royal designation of Beer Supplier to the Crown. At the beginning of this century it was developed into an apart-ment complex. When Ruud Zegwaart and Debby Dunand bought their apartment in 2016, they could start from scratch with making everything they had imagined a reality. They wanted to create a little bit of Curaçao in the Dutch capital and so they stripped down the apartment completely. Their idea was to realise a loft-like whole in the limited space that they had.

grimm to the limits

The house was built in 1905 as a ´stolp´ farmhouse on the foundation of a much older farm. The noble family of Van Stolk, owned the majority of the land in the vicinity. At the beginning of the last century, the family essentially gave around 1000m2 to their friend, the painter Jaap Min. He raised his 6 children on the farm and painted in the old stable. He raised the ceiling in the central part, to create more light and space for his artistic activities. When Hannah and Jorg Grimm bought the place in 2014, the old ´stolp´ farmhouse was in such a dilapidated state that the place was offered simply as a building plot. The family actually found it a lovely idea that the Grimms wanted to keep the house and…

6 generations of belgian decorators

Geoffroy designs and decorates houses, apartments and restaurants in Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, the UK, France, and the US. He names Leonardo da Vinci, Tony Duquette, St. Nicholas and his mother as his biggest sources of inspiration. He was born and raised as a professional decorator, one of the sixth generation of decorators and furniture makers in his family. “We started out as furniture makers in Maldegem. Five generations before me huge pieces of furniture were being made here in the studio, for the good citizens who were looking to create their first ‘dining rooms’ during that period. That went on until around 1918, the end of WW1, and then my great-grandmother decided to open a shop, alongside the studio. People were euphoric that the war was over and had money…
