Interior designer Remmelt van der Wal recently opened his new Remmelt interior design studio in Amsterdam: a unique location in an impressive monumental building next to the Rijksmuseum, on the corner with PC Hooftstraat. Remmelt’s style is minimalist, cosmopolitan and industrial. The interior designer worked hard to convert the building into an exclusive design studio. Covering an area of over 200m², the studio is a showcase for innovative made-to-measure solutions for all kinds of interior space. Unique details are lovingly incorporated, exuding luxury.
Remmelt van der Wal: “I listen to the client, we discuss the project together in great detail and look for solutions that will inspire the client. Every individual element of an interior design has its own function, and needs to work with the mood of the overall concept. My designs are not restricted by standard measurements. This gives me the freedom to create an overall interior design that fits seamlessly into the client’s individual lifestyle.” The Solid Surface HI-MACS® material was also used to create the interior fittings. Kitchen worktops, bookshelves, cupboards, bathroom walls and floors and a table were made from this robust and impervious acrylic stone. The interior designer opted for the shade Alpine White: “I chose this particular material for its uniform quality and characteristics, which make it resistant to external effects. It stays looking brand new. I love this shade of white – there are no other colours in it, making it perfect for a wide range of applications.”
You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead. Ever Evolving Life 4-5 shows the complete transformation this armoire went through to become a cute little coffee bar.
