ST JOB

ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

The design for the apartment situated in the St Job complex in Rotterdam, responds to the closed character of the existing building.
By bringing in a division between the diverse living areas and the adjacent storage, an inner corridor is created. The corridor is situated perpendicular to the fa├žade, and works as a light functional transition zone.

The most private areas like the bedroom and the bathroom are situated halfway in the corridor, thereby creating a more private realm. The study, entrance and kitchen are more openly connected to the living space. This positioning results in a spatial merge of new and existing elements, whereby the distinctive authentic roof beams and columns, that characterise this apartment, remain the determining elements.
