Nordic style apartment by architect Jurjen Van Hulzen
Well located in the city of Amsterdam, on the corner of the famous ‘nine streets’ the Nieuw apartment creates a nice and peaceful space to disconnect from the busy city. The design of the apartment expresses itself through a mix out of nordic archetypical simplicity and Parisian elegance.
A thought-through concept of a quiet place to disconnect, with natural tones and materials, creates a very peaceful residence in the buzzing city. The warm grey painted walls contribute together with the dark treated wooden floor to the unique ambiance of the space. Bringing together natural materials, design classics combined with matching furniture, fine finishes and well-chosen colors the apartment turns into a contemporary and at the same time timeless residence.
To finish off the design The Nieuw collaborated with the interior design studio ‘Ibiza Interiors’ from Ibiza and their partner store ‘The Modern‘ in Amsterdam which introduced an interesting selection of furniture brands in the project. A mix of design classics from brands such as Carl Hansen, Fredericia, Gervasoni, and DCW and conceptual furniture brands like Frama, Menu, Heerenhuis, Fermob, and Ay Illuminate.
The apartment contains around 70 sqm and includes a wide living room in the front with large steel windows overlooking the canal, offering great views, much daylight, and the sunset behind the opposite canal houses. In the rear a large master bedroom – with access to the balcony – where the morning light brings in a warm and calming ambiance. A big bathroom with industrial finishes including shower and bathtub such as a small separate restroom. The kitchen is connected to the balcony where its inhabitants can enjoy their morning coffee and an office space which can be optionally used as a second bedroom.
The result is a peaceful and fascinating space where natural colors and elements encourage to calm down and disconnect. All this on only a few minutes from the Hoxton Hotel, Soho House, and right on the corner of the beautiful Nine Streets and the world heritage Amsterdam Canals. A better contrast we can’t imagine, city living at it’s best!
The Nieuw apartment is now being used as a showcase project for their signature and future developments and rental apartment designed by and for design lovers. It’s currently for rent for €3000 per month, with a minimum of 3 months.
