Completed: Hoofddorp Garden Studio

With the rise in both land prices and numbers of people working from home, high-quality insulated garden studios have become a big trend. In Hoofddorp, Serge Schoemaker Architects used limited architectural means to design a sleek multifunctional garden studio. The result is a small and versatile structure.

Renovation of a private residence in Amsterdam South

February 1, 2018

In renovating this 1930s house in Amsterdam, we created a high-quality interior full of contrast. With a number of strategic alterations, the ground floor was redesigned both spatially and functionally. The renovation exploits the spatial qualities of the house to the full. The intermediate floor in the original extension was removed, creating a striking, high-ceilinged kitchen cum living room with rooflights overhead.

Transformation of freestanding house in Hoofddorp completed

August 4, 2017

In renovating this freestanding house in Hoofddorp, Serge Schoemaker Architects gave it a radical metamorphosis, creating a spacious interior full of character, with charming sight lines and plenty of daylight. Enlarging the living space by including the former garage and loft above made the ground floor not only more spacious but also taller. A new rooflight at a height of over four metres draws exceptional levels of daylight inside.

Practice assigned to renovate monument along Reeuwijk Lakes

June 28, 2017

Located along the Reeuwijk Lakes, this former clergy house is surrounded by a stunning Dutch peat landscape. We will renovate and extend the freestanding nineteenth century house and restore the island on which the municipal monument is built. The Reeuwijk Lakes are located in the middle of the Dutch Green Heart and are the result of large-scale peat extraction which was on the rise in 1600. As a result of the excavations, the banks crumbled easily, resulting in ever larger ponds.
