project type: private residence
designer: allard architecture
structural engineer: Duyts Bouwconstructies BV
allard architecture was part of the development of this picturesque house on the Utrechtsedwarsstraat in the city centre of Amsterdam. The three levels, extension and back façade are completely renovated, only the traditional front façade will stay the same.
The extension at the back of the house and the new rear façade open up the interior spaces. Through the new glass façade at the corner of the extension, extra light can penetrate into the house. The new rear façade shows the evolution of the house, contrasting the original structure with the contemporary addition.
