Dutch interior architecture firm i29 designed the interior of a historic department store tower in Amsterdam’s iconic Dam Square. The unconventional interior will serve as an artist’s residence and is part of a larger program entitled “Room on the Roof”. Musicians, artists, designers and other creative professionals will be invited to take up residence and create an artistic project to share with the public. The program was established by the De Bijenkorf department store in collaboration with the Rijksmuseum to welcome both national and international talents.

Playing with proportion and perspective, the space resembles a colossal cabinet with various living spaces stacked over several half-levels. Wooden ladders lead from the lower level living space to a work space and to an elevated sleeping space. Across from the wooden structure is a small seating area bathed in white. A telescope offering panoramic views of Amsterdam provide inspiration. The black spiral staircase winds through the center of the studio.

Designer Maarten Baas will be the first guest to inhabit the space. “Room On The Roof wants to offer the artist a unique experience,” said i29 in a statement. “This was the starting point for i29 to realize an installation that brings together two worlds in one space; playing with scale and perception as in the universe of Alice in Wonderland.” The artistic works created here will soon be exhibited for the public.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
