Three former silos were spared and around them a new urban area is being developed. This compact apartment overlooks these three iconic silos and is part of an apartment building from our colleagues from M3H architecten.

Compact living
This compact apartment, of about 50 m2, has a smart plan. The interior design has adjusted itself to the plan. Furniture is used to create different places and at the same time tries to keep the apartment as open and spacious as possible.

Vintage Dutch Design and Moroccan craft
Lots of design classics from Dutch Designer are used for the interior. The chairs around the dining table are from André Cordemeyer (manufacturer Gispen) and were reupholstered with fabric by Kvadrat. The sofa from Kho Liang Ie (Artifort) was reupholstered in green leather. The armchair from the same era and manufacturer (Artifort) was designed by Geoffrey Harcourt. The custom made rug, the table and cushion were designed by Mina Abouzahra and produced in Morocco.
