DAY’s high-end canal house restoration nearly finished!

  

DAY is currently working on creating a high-end bespoke interior of a monumental 17th century building in the middle of the Canal district of Amsterdam. The location on Prinsengracht needed to be redesigned to meet the standards of international renters but also take into consideration the historic elements. The space has been newly divided into two separate apartments, and has overcome the challenge of making the narrow monument in to a light and accessible living space by opening up most of the walls, connecting the front and the back of the building.

  

The two apartments are now spacious and each behold everything a 4 persons household needs. Dutch history has been important in the design, the original details are intact and by adding natural materials of the golden age, such as marble, the building has been restored to its original glory.

  

  

The two apartments are located above each other and have their own world of luxury. One with a garden, with a touch of green in the colour palette referring back to the famous Dutch painter Breitner. The second with a year round usable winter garden and a separate balcony with blue accents associated to Vermeer. The idea behind the concept is created to respect the historical value of the building and to give the residents a sense of the long history of Dutch famous painters.

  

The project is very near completion. The bespoke furniture (kitchens, marble floors, wooden floors, bathrooms, wardrobes, custom made beds) are all getting their finishing touches. After this phase the catalogue furniture will arrive.

  

Day is looking forward to seeing this exceptional building come to life with it’s new inhabitants.
