项目位于赞丹市老牌工业区——汉布格雷（Hembrug ), 该区占地42.5公顷。在这个诺大的标志性工业场地上，Studio Modijefsky事务所为一对艺术家夫妇设计了一套温馨的住宅与工作室。建筑原是工业车间，体量巨大，空旷的室内空间充满了改造潜力。Studio Modijefsky事务所将室内规划为两个层楼，分别容纳了不同功能，包括一层的办公室与工作空间，以及二层的画廊及住宅区。两个楼层由两部极具雕塑感的楼梯连接起来。其中一部由一层通向厨房与住宅，供业主自用。另一部，则由通向二层的画廊，以供来访者使用。项目的一层满足了工作室所有的功能需求，并配备有日常生活空间，可以作为独立的楼层使用。
On the Hembrug terrain in Zaandam, an area of 42,5 hectares, a monumental industrial site has been transformed by Studio Modijefsky into the home and studio of an artist couple. The substantial volume of this building full of potential has been wisely divided into two levels, therefore allowing to accommodate different functions: an office and a workshop on the ground floor, a gallery space and a home on the first floor. The two floors are connected by two sculptural staircases, one of which leads to the home through the kitchen, the other one brings visitors from the workshop to the gallery space. The ground level has been designed so that all the functions in the workshop are implemented. This floor can operate by itself serving all the needs for the daily production and activities.

During shows and presentations, this grand gallery space is served by the totally customized and unconventional open kitchen which is part of the house. A central piece, the island, has been carefully designed and crafted entirely in brass, completely filled with cabinets on each of the four sides, and covered by a beautiful stainless-steel top. Two ‘specials’ complement the elegant design: custom made bronze handles and pull-out wooden shelves. The back of the kitchen is a system of open white shelves leaning on the transparent glass box of the main entrance.

A big oak table and a set of vintage chairs are surmounted by an art piece: a self-built kayak converted in a warm light object hanging upside-down above the whole length of the table.

A big opening through the wall invites you to discover a much more intimate and embracing space, the actual living room, which is characterized by a series of wooden objects and vintage furniture pieces that give the space a deep feeling of warmth. Here a comfortable sofa is facing a wood-burning stove. As you go up the main staircase and cross the threshold, Ketelhuis (translated as ‘boiler house’) comes across as open to visitors. Immediately as you enter, the interior appears sober and welcoming, being it defined by three main finishes: white painted materials, oak wood, and brass.

Standing in front of you, closer to the entrance accessible through the second staircase, a big gallery space has been minimally designed to accommodate different kinds of moments and events, leaving space for imagination. White industrial beams overlook the haring bone wooden floor, two simple elements in harmonic balance with each other. Three holes in the ceiling, previously accommodating as many chimneys, are now replaced with glass portholes, turning the openings into skylights. A system of minimalistic white shutters allows to modify the original openness of the industrial building, making it into a livable space and allowing the inhabitants to regulate the amount of desired light throughout the day in all the areas of the house. The completely white walls subtly reveal the structural grid, enhanced through a play of reliefs which become traces of the function, a celebration of the building.

Going through the hallway, a few sliding doors to the guest room, walk-in closet, bathroom and toilets, camouflage with the walls. At the end of it the ceiling almost doubles in height and a the master bedroom discloses. The spacious room and the natural light favor the presence of different plant species, which create an enchanted atmosphere. On the north walls of the bedroom, bathroom and living room, the original windows left without function due to the annexation of a new building, are now used as light-boxes which diffuse warm light into the rooms.

The height of the ceiling allows for a mezzanine to overlook the room and the view. The steps leading to this ‘room-in-the-room’ hide a wooden closet serving the space, refined by a simple yet detailed white metal railing.

Following it, a balcony-like space hosts a free-standing bathtub with a ceiling window which allows for stargazing while taking a bath, being surrounded by numerous plants visually connecting the two levels. The crazy layout of this room derives from a mix of choices reflecting the extravagant personalities of the owners.

The white herringbone floor tiles of toilets and bathroom complement the oak wood and white marble of the cabinets, while high mirrors above the sinks enhance the ceiling height. Bronze light fixtures, designed and crafted by the client’s atelier, can be found throughout the space as small pleasant surprises.

Ketelhuis is a place where every single area has been designed to complement the original building, yet to enhance the designated use of each one of the rooms.
