Rotterdam is a rapidly growing metropolitan renowned for a skyline quite unlike that of other Dutch cities. A view of this remarkable skyline is a highly sought out feature, and nothing beats a view from your rooftop.
A fully fit out roof terrace with a secret jacuzzi, green roof offset with integrated seating, and a jaw-dropping view of Rotterdam, is just one of the crowning features of P·A’s renovation of a early twentieth century Graaf Florisstraat mansion into a luxurious modern apartment.
A few strategic perforations in the load-bearing walls of the living area plan enhance circulation and connection between the functional spaces, while still articulating the separation between these different “rooms”. A central, wood-paneled wellness element on the penthouse level not only houses a king-sized bed, but a jacuzzi, sauna and steam shower. The combination of classical ornamentation, and these modern wooden elements creates a dramatic contrast.
