Concrete Living Marius Haverkamp‘s Amsterdam kitchen was the original inspiration behind our kitchen remodel. And although our kitchen concept morphed along the way, I still absolutely adore this home. The architect and his wife, children’s clothing designer Emily Gray, transformed a former warehouse into a loft combining industrial elements like brick, concrete, reclaimed wood, steel and glass
There is a lot to like here: the simple ground level fireplace, the way the hearth is sort of carried around the room with the carpet in the middle, the furniture layout for a long, narrow room and the ceiling treatment.
The architects – whose previous London projects include a plywood-lined loft extension and a full-width brick and glass addition to a 19th-century house – were tasked with renovating and extending this home to create more generous spaces.
