A selection of residential projects designed by Standard Studio.
They range from a tiny 17m2 student home in Rotterdam to a 350m2 luxury apartment in Amsterdam and from an old 1950s school building to a 1930s industrial warehouse transformed into a luxury loft.
The blank canvas as a starting point.
Every residential project is approached as a completely blank canvas. This means that we strip out all the unnecessary items until we reach the core and shell. This way we start with the original structure, as pure as possible. With a pure form as starting point, we begin to fill the floorplan with the spaces requested by the client. In residential projects, the interior spaces will be 'shared' or 'public', like a living room or a kitchen. Or a space is 'private' or 'individual' like a bedroom. Usually, we start with the most important spaces: the kitchen and living room which serve as the 'social heart' of the house. The other spaces are placed around the social hearth either in direct connection or with an 'in-between space' that acts as a transition between the 'public' social space and the 'private' individual space.
