A Museum Turned Into A Home by PEÑA Architecture


PEÑA Architecture team shares with us their work on the Casa F located at the former Kralings Museum at the Hoflaan (Rotterdam, Netherlands) which in 2010 was transformed into a luxury apartment building. Today it houses three apartments with a shared entrance. The architects worked on the 193 square meter apartment on the 2nd floor as well as the attached 25 square meter outdoor space.


This apartment which was rendered in a “bare bones” condition had to be completely redesigned. The characteristic ceiling and beam structure had to remain as prominent components of the design. The maximum height of the ceiling is 6 meters. The living room is open to a completely new kitchen with an adjoining utility room. At the rear a large area has been added to the living room for use as a “playroom.” Folding doors in the living room give access to two small balconies, and the playroom provides access to a large balcony. All the closets in the bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms, and the hallway have been designed by the architect who is also responsible for the decoration, furniture and lighting. – from PEÑA Architecture
