The 19th century mansion is situated in the centre of Rotterdam on
a very attractive location at the riverbank. The first two floors
of the building have to be transformed into a contemporary living-working
space, anticipating on a situation of limited personal mobility of
guests and inhabitants.|
While the view from the upper floor towards the waterside is tremendous,
the lower floor appeared to be rather narrow and introverted.
The design aims to interweave the upper and lower floor, allowing
for a more comprehensive spatial experience of the two distinctive
areas and enhancing their physical connection.
