Dutch architect Laura Alvarez transformed a dark, dingy, two-storey apartment in Amsterdam into this bright, light-infused loft space we’d die for. Charged with getting “rid of the dark, claustrophobic feel of the old apartment and introduce a bright loft atmosphere,” Alvarez got to work, which involved gutting the space, removing existing walls and redefining this home as a whole. The resulting space features an open-concept, 70m2 main-floor footprint with a central “floating” staircase that is as much appreciated for its practical purposes as for its sleek style, leading up to the private bedroom level. Here, two bedrooms separated by a central ensuite offer a sweet retreat from the living and entertaining areas below.
