This house is not a hotel. But close enough. Rooms arranged in the same sequence, a kitchen suited to host a football team made by furniture designer Piet Hein Eek. In Holland, the only home for a big family.
Seven children, all boys and all adolescents. Furnish the house of a family composed not a trivial matter. Especially if the owners are not satisfied with a slew of bunk beds. As in the Dutch house. “We wanted a warm soul and with enough space for all ” tell the clients. “It was important that children have their own room where you can be alone. “ So when it came to setting up house near Tilburg involved a team of experts: Peer Bedaux for architecture, Peter Lubbers for the garden, and Piet Hein Eek Claudy Jongstra for interior design. The latter, known for using recycled materials with which it has created a new style, has here created pieces for this purpose. The house has taken shape gradually. “The owners did not want to design a house, but a project developed to measure carefully, ” says Piet Hein Eek. “It’s exactly how I like to work. Instead of creating all at once, rather do it quietly, giving space to the personal choices and unforeseen developments. ” via
