The i29 interior architects were invited to create the artist’s residence called Room on the Roof . It is located in the small tower on top of the De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. This studio is a unique spot in the historic heart of the city.
Room of the Roof occupies approximately 12 metres height space. Also, the historical structure offers a prime view overlooking the Dome Square. The design team divided a studio into living spaces. The two-toned scheme of wood and white surfaces expands the feel of the interior despite the structure’s size limitations. A composition of wooden boxes containing the bedroom, kitchen and study are set againts white-washed lounge zone. Guests can reach the top of the tower with a continuous spiral stair.
The studio is fully equipped for the artists. Here they can find a telescope for enjoying panoramic views of the city, a bed for dreaming and other necessary things. There‘s no doubt that this residence looks really exclusive and offers an unique experience for an artist.
