Loft House // Marc Koehler Architects


With the transformation of an old harbor cantina on KNSM eiland in Amsterdam into large apartments, this building changed function but kept its identity. The renovated house is composed from 4 smaller ‘houses’, containing the more private spaces and supporting facilities. In between them, an open multifunctional space emerges (the streets), and natural daylight enters deep into the house.

The elevated second level is used for cooking, dining, working and has a guest house, connected by walking bridges. These ‘roof terraces’ are placed in such way that you can fully enjoy the view of the adjacent harbor. The walls consist of closets and cupboards which double function as a wooden support structure. The whole loft-space is thus used, but retains its open character.
