A design collaboration between Doepel Strijkers and LEX Architects caused the event of a contemporary residence in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Entitled Parksite, the dwelling is the results of converting a garage ambulance into contemporary living spaces. By shifting the rear wall with glass, an optimum indoor-outdoor connection was provided, ensuring unobstructed garden views from every room.
A dugout acts because the focus of the home, while generating height for a second level. The internal design features various interesting details: “Custom-made cupboard, kitchen and stairs finished in bright orange polyurethane, link the dugout to the doorway hall at streetlevel side and the lounge at the park side. Loose blocks at the staircase form informal chairs or function as tables. A polycarbonate light-box with integrated LED lights houses the bedrooms and spans the distance above the living-kitchen“. Benefit from the views!
