A historic Dutch schoolhouse gets a residential redesign by Standard Studio.
For an active family of five in Amsterdam, this century-old schoolhouse building was given a second life when it was transformed into an open-plan family dwelling. First the school was converted into 10 apartments by Casa Architecten, then Amsterdam-based Standard Studio was hired to tackle the interior design of one of the individual apartments. Throughout the space, simple and industrial materials were favored, a nod to the original utilitarian function of the space.
