This house in the East of Amsterdam was originally built in 1925 and with its compact floor plan and tiny living room outdated for modern living. The back facade is demolished and an extension was added to elongate the living room. Another room was added next to the original bedroom with a walk through bathroom in between the two. At the end of the lot a studio and shed are added which leaves room for a perfectly square garden. The wooden cladding of the two facades are repeated on the fencing of the garden to emphasise its serving as a patio. From the studio aswel as the living room large sliding doors can be opened towards the outdoor space so that on good days the patio is part of the total floorpan and the devision between indoor and outdoor space dissolves.
