Interiors: Het zwarte huis (The black house)

Categories: Architecture + Interiors

You know our love affair with modern homes that don’t feel cold and sterile, rather warm and inviting. This project by Bakers Architecten in Utrecht, Netherlands definitely fits that description perfectly. You can see in these lovely interior shots that although plenty of modern materials and colors, like concrete and gray, are used, the designers combine those sometimes-cold materials with warm ones like wood, and the balance with the natural light pouring in through ample windows really creates for a lovely composition.

“In Utrecht’s museum quarter, just south of the city centre, there was for many years a vacant plot on the corner of Lange Nieuwstraat and Vrouwjuttenstraat. This site in the midst of historical buildings is now occupied by ‘Het Zwarte Huis’ (The Black House), a complex containing six apartments with semi-underground parking and the new premises of Bakers Architecten.”
