CONCEPT
The many shades of off-white are a reference to ‘witjes’ – the small imperfect tiles often found in canal houses around The Netherlands. These shades of colour starting with earth colours on the ground floor and basement transitioning to cooler colours of the sky on the top floor accentuate the historical details and panelling of the building.
