Seeing this charming design apartment, especially developed for expats in Rotterdam, makes one reconsider the idea of a studio. This apartment is perfectly adapted to a lifestyle that includes minimization of space and maximization of functionality. A complete renovation of this design studio took place in 2014, with the addition of a new kitchen and a new bathroom.
With a total living area of 32 square meters, the apartment is situated in a characteristic building from the early 1900s and features beautiful woodwork and tall paned windows. The studio has many interesting details that describe it as versatile, the large wall made from oriented strand board is either hiding the wardrobe or hiding the handcrafted bed ladder. It can even become the surface on which movies are projected. The studio features a small mezzanine that can be used as a relaxation spot, storage space or a (second) bed. The black leather sofa is a split back sofabed from the design brand INNOVATION LIVING.
This apartment has a practical layout, with an open plan living room and kitchen area and a flood of daylight from the four windows. The ceiling height is 3.6 meters which creates a spacious atmosphere. All walls are painted in white against the wooden floor. The studio apartment has easy access to the eclectic Witte de Withstraat with outdoor dining areas, art galleries and shops, allowing the inhabitants to enjoy their free time close to home, in a relaxed and trendy atmosphere.
