Sarphatipark – classic house renovation

Sarphatipark - classic house renovation

A characteristic Amsterdam house situated in the Oude Pijp at one of the most beautiful green parks in Amsterdam. This classic house renovation finds its characteristics in the many details that have been restored. These original details, such as marble fireplaces, ornamental ceilings, a fountain in the hall and carved wooden frames are characteristic of the houses in Amsterdam. Standard Studio adores these details and has chosen a modern but warm restoration as a concept so that the house is transformed and fits again within this century.

A stately and generous dark blue has been chosen, with Black Blue from Farrow & Ball as the connecting factor. The windows, paneling and stairs connecting the spaces by making them dark blue. The walls are painted in a soft gray. The playroom, which has been made completely dark blue, has become an intimate and cozy play space. The rooms are clearly divided into the “adult” and children’s room, which creates a natural division in the elongated house.

The kitchen island has a white Cararra marble top and the cabinets have a smoked Oak finish. The marble fits well with the original fireplace, also made of white marble. The kitchen has black details, such as a quooker. A round oak table with the CH23 chair with walnut and paper cord by Carl Hansen connects the kitchen with the living room. Above the dining table are dark blue hanging lamps from Ferm Living with golden details.

The bathroom and toilet are tiled with a Ceppo di Gre tile with a terrazzo look and light gray grout. The cabinets are custom made from walnut wood with Muuto dot brass knobs.

The bedroom is located at the front and has a small French balcony, in good weather you can sit here in the sun with a view of the park. The aim was to make the best possible use of the spaces and heights by making a spacious bedroom closet, from floor to ceiling, made of walnut wood.
