Renovation and interior design

“House in a House” is the sustainable renovation of an existing 1980s terraced house in the Spinbaankwartier in Wassenaar. The project received an honourable mention during BNA’s best building of the year 2016. The jury was ecstatic about the courage this design shows; in these types of houses you rarely see such spaces being made. It shows that remodelling can yield much more than additional cubic meters or a higher insulation value; the architect has also created a great spatial experience. This is a sympathetic project, with great cooperation between the client and the architect.

Sustainable house designs

The goal of the renovation of this 1930 mansion was to create a spacious sustainable house with a lot of natural light to give the private clients a unique spatial experience and a healthy comfortable indoor climate. The use of natural materials and the strong outside inside relation give the house a warm and pleasant experience.

review by Leyla and Hamdi | Floating House
When we overlook the house at the end of our tour on the back terrace, Leyla says: “The house is completely to our liking, but it also shows who we are. The openness and transparency through the many large windows. The accessibility by hardly using doors. The light that draws over our home is like a new painting every day. It makes us happy and cheerful. In that context, a complement is also due to Global Architects, who has the creativity to make our thoughts, our wishes, tangible and visible. That deserves a big compliment.”

review by private client, France | mansion Statenkwartier The Hague
Being expats and buying an old house in a new country is quite challenging.
Global Architects made our dream come true. They shared their knowledge, experience and contacts but they were also the perfect interface between us and the country, which is priceless.

Featured project - Tiny Beach House

Every month we feature a new recently realized project on our homepage. This month we feature Tiny Beach House, a 19th-Century Fisherman’s Cottage published on the 26th of January in the New York Times.

Because they were avid kite surfers, they decided to look for a place on the North Sea in The Hague and found a 600-square-foot fisherman’s house built in 1878 just steps from the beach. After buying it for 180,000 euros ($190,000) that April, they spent 18 months and 150,000 euros ($158,000) doing a gut renovation with help from Global Architects.

“It was in really bad condition and looked like not much maintenance had been done over the last hundred years,” said Arthur S. Nuss, the firm’s owner. By Tim McKeough
