IJburg House

Address: Mattenbiesstraat 154 1087 GC | AMSTERDAM | Netherlands
Latitude/Longitude: 52.3529, 4.996

With a view to a canal on the Grote Rietland of IJburg the site provided a unique opportunity for a family to live in a free-standing villa within 20 minutes of central Amsterdam.

The family of four, a film score composer and a business film scenario writer with 2 teenage children required a house that provided opportunities in living together but also independently. The section of the house clearly describes the programme with children on the lowered level, parents on the upper, and the ground floor acting as the communal, family and social area (and also bufferzone).
