Deconstructing a black box

Posted on Thu, 25 Nov 2010 by midcenturyjo

Toying with space. Deconstructing floors and walls and reconstructing a big communal space. Old facade and new internal configurations. Is it thinking outside the box? Floating and fusing and looking just a little like an Escher print. House and studio transformed by Zecc Architecten and Studio in Rotterdam.

Dear Jo, I was wondering if it was possible that you do a walkthrough of your WHOLE house? I would sincerely love to see your bedroom, kitchen, study, bathroom, etc too.

Love, Amanda.

Very interesting as an architectural exercise, but…. could anyone actually live in it?

Chari says:

Ofcourse someone could live in it! I could! It would be GREAT FUN! …like living in a fantasy architectural world… with lots of squares and boxes that you could add round accessories and fluffiness to.

I have become infatuated with this blog! Another great post, what an awesome house. Reminds me very much of a friend of mine's old house…very cool.

An absolutely magnificent makeover. This house is really fascinating and entertaining. It reminds me a bit of an adventure playground only that this is for adults not for kids. Always something different to see around the next corner.
The only thing I would be a bit worried about is that there are many sharp edged corners – not something for someone who had a bit too much booze – lol ????

I've met the house of my dreams…

Wauw, this is really fantastic. I like the black on the outside!

The textures, materials, and finishes in this home are to die for!
