Emma designed a lot apartment in a state listed monument in the oldest part of Amsterdam. In this old warehouse 32 gigantic wooden beams span a space 27 meters long and 6 meters wide.
The space is kept open to let light penetrate the deep interior.
Through the tactic positioning of well designed service units several functional spaces are defined. The walls are kept in original state, new elements have a minimalistic finishing
