Stalking a concept

Posted on Wed, 15 Nov 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor’s marks… and I love it. I’ve included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I’d like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don’t dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.

Totally agree – the raw texture of the 'before' space is infinitely more interesting than the sterile 'after'.

Carol says:

The before one most definitely, I love exposed brick.
