Rolf Bruggink together with Niek Wagemans have recently completed the transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a unique home and workspace in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

All of the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house.

The former coach house that makes up the shell was originally built in 1895 in the back garden of a wealthy aristocrat’s home.

Inside the home, the ground floor is known as the sculptural living space that houses a kitchen, toilet, and technical space. Upstairs there’s a shower room, bedroom, walk-in closet, and an office with bath.

Throughout the home, art pieces are featured in various places, like the large artwork seen in the photo below by Jans Muskee, and sculptures by Handmade Industrials.

Positioned under the office on the ground floor is the dining area and glass enclosed kitchen.

Around the corner from the kitchen is the living area, with an artistic rug that has been made out of old blankets by Atelier Remy&Veenhuizen. A large window provides views of the garden outside.

Another set of stairs give you a second option for reaching the upper floor of the home.
