Incorporating the vibrant and distinctive essence of Dubai, South Africa, and Amsterdam, renowned interior designer Roelfien Vos skillfully infused these captivating locales into a newly constructed canal house in Amsterdam. The result is a cosmopolitan haven, brimming with extraordinary details and an unparalleled level of customization.

To ensure utmost adaptability, the house was initially delivered as an empty shell, offering the opportunity to tailor the layout to the resident’s unique needs. As an example, the wall separating the hallway and kitchen was removed and replaced with an exquisite glass partition adorned with intricate patterns of steel and brass, creating an expansive ambiance. Moreover, while undertaking this modification, the concept emerged to establish a connection between the steel accents of the glass wall and the staircase, which initially lacked distinctive features. 

The master suite, a fusion of three distinct areas, was transformed into a spacious and luxurious enclave, boasting a dressing room and a bathroom reminiscent of an international boutique hotel. Dark wooden panels were artfully incorporated into the walls, introducing a graphic and playful design element. Every aspect of the interior construction was meticulously envisioned by Roelfien, ensuring that each space exudes a remarkable and singular outcome.

The kitchen features a harmonious amalgamation of the same materials, complemented by warm walnut wood. The adjoining living room continues this cohesive aesthetic, with consistent application of the aforementioned materials. The reciprocal presence of brass lines in the walnut furnishings establishes a visual link with the glass wall, infusing the entire design with a contemporary allure.  

To conceal the technological components, the ceilings throughout the house have been subtly lowered, enriched with meticulously crafted moldings comprising up to four distinct profiles, which are accentuated by indirect lighting. This meticulous approach creates an impression of grandeur, evoking the sensation of dwelling within a venerable architectural masterpiece rather than a newly constructed building.
