A Dutch House with a Focus on Simplicity by Jeroen de Nijs

Commissioned to renovate a century-old residence in Alkmaar, a picturesque Dutch town known for its traditional cheese market, Amsterdam-based architect Jeroen de Nijs has injected a new sense of life into the historic building by creating more open, bright and free-flowing interiors underpinned by simplicity and craftsmanship. Clean-cut lines and minimalist forms are combined with natural materials and artisanal finishes for a contemporary design language of unassuming sophistication and timeless appeal that both complements and invigorates the property’s architectural heritage.
