Standard Studio The Netherlands : Ons Dorp is a school building which is located in Elisabeth Wolffstraat, Amsterdam, that got converted into different apartments. This particular one was designed for a family of five. The teacher’s lounge got remodelled into the bedrooms and theclassroom into the living space.
Due to its high ceilings, it was possible to create maisonettes, which lead for the whole family to be together, but still remain with a bit of privacy. It meant that in the living area we could combine all five elements; kitchen, living room, dining room, play area for the children andwork space into one.
Storage is of essence when designing for a family with three young children, therefore as a result furniture pieces were created under the stair cases that not only allowed for the children to put their toys, but also as a play and sitting area.
