Historic Canal House and Office in Utrecht by Remy Meijers
Meet the work of Remy Meijers, on the riverbanks of the Vecht. Stylish and elegant, with a twist of traditional, the Canal House is an excellent choice for those who are in search of both, a home and an office. “History meets the present day in a canal-side house situated just a stone’s throw away from the centre of the city of Utrecht. This seventeenth-century property which houses a home and an office has been brought right up to date while retaining the building’s historical features. In particular, a wonderful sense of spaciousness has been created in both the office area and the living quarters.”
Nuances of beige, grey and brown break the white’s monotony. Yes, it’s all about the palette of neutral colours and the tranquility that comes with it. The apartment is a delightful inspiration for those who end up visiting it. Envisioned as a functional and practical space, the Canal House is embellished with several authentic ornaments. Structured on two levels, the house features a social area, containing the kitchen, the living room and the dining area- all of them located on the ground floor and a more private area, containing the bedrooms and the office, on the first floor (which happens to be the attic). The house also features an interesting metallic staircase, allowing vertical circulation.
