House C: Interior renovation & construction
This open plan apartment, situated in the heart of Amsterdam near Dam square, needed a low budget renovation, simple enough for long-term renters to later apply their own character to. The architect self and friend took of the project work including; painting, regrouting tiles, plumbing, new light fittings, laying a durable floor and fitting a new kitchen with bespoke concrete countertop. It allowed for some experimentation in the conrete mix and improvement of one's own logistical and management skills.
