Apartment Amsterdam by Robert Kolenik
Discover this stunning apartment in Amsterdam by interior designer Robert Kolenik.‘A typical Amsterdam apartment’ is how the interior designer Robert Kolenik describes this apartment in Amsterdam city centre, which comprises the upper three floors of a building. Having lived and worked abroad for years, the owner asked Kolenik to come up with an interior design for his apartment. ‘Homes in the city centre are limited in terms of size’, the designer explains, ‘so the challenge is to create functional space that retains a luxurious, homely feel.’See more after the jump:
As part of his concept, the first thing that interior designer Robert Kolenik did was to design a large wall unit to link together all the spaces in the apartment naturally. In narrower or smaller spaces, most people tend to use smaller pieces of furniture. ‘I do the opposite’, Kolenik explains. ‘By putting in larger pieces, I emphasise a sense of spaciousness in the home. The floating block in dark oak creates a line in the apartment that visually enlarges the space.’
