Dostojevskisingel apartment – Amsterdam
Dostojevskisingel apartment Amsterdam
In mid 2020 Standard Studio was asked to make an interior design for an apartment in the Dostojevskisingel in Amsterdam. The clients wish was to have a compact but spacious apartment with two persons living there with an opposite time schedule during the day.
When one of the two sleeps the other person is awake, and the other way around. The solution to this was to make a square shaped volume in the middle of the apartment, separating the bedroom from the livingroom. Inside the square shaped volue you find the kitchen that can be used from both sides and it can be closed with sliding doors.
This way the livingroom could be used like you would do normally: it can be noisey sometimes. Because there is always a space in between the living and the bedroom the noise is reduced to a minimum. Another advantage is the light that is able to enter the apartment along the sidewalls. When both persons are awake all the slidingdoors can be opened leaving a superbright and light apartment.
