Uxus Design and the Amsterdam Canal House

Posted on Fri, 18 Jul 2008 by KiM

Uxus Design is an interiors and architecture firm based in Amsterdam. One of the principals and creative director of the firm, George Gottl, emailed us with some photos of one of my FAVOURITE projects of theirs, the Canal House, a loft in Amsterdam that I had initially seen in the April 2007 issue of Elle Decoration. This has always been an unforgettable space for me because it is so creative and quirky and eclectic and just plain funky. It’s a mix of mid-century modern, Hollywood regency and science lab with stunning sputnik light fixtures, Eames molded plywood chairs, and a bowl of skulls. What’s not to love?

“The canal house is located in a 250m2 18th century warehouse with a panoramic view over the city. The owners wanted to keep the original open-plan layout of the space so, UXUS created a series of dramatic curtain walls, which could be opened and closed according to the needs of use. All of the decorative interior elements were selected to reflect the eclectic tastes of the owners.”
