Monumental Coach House by Zecc Architects

By • Feb 26, 2013

Monumental Coach House by Zecc Architects in cooperation with BYTR architects has been completed in Breukelen, Netherlands in 2012.

The residence is a remodel of an historic building that was formerly a coach house and horse stable.

Monumental Coach House by Zecc Architects:

“A monumental coach house and stable from 1760 becomes a spacious house. A mishmash of built curiosities is removed. Historical elements became visible again. The stable, still complete with hay racks and troughs, is used as a living room. The tack room becomes the entrance hall and the coach house the new kitchen.

Some oversized high doors reappeared during the demolition. This created a surprising connection between living room and kitchen. In this high dimension, a new staircase of solid oak wood is placed as a modern addition. It has become the centre of the house, and daylight falls from the roof into the new kitchen.

A double hood with wooden trusses determines the atmosphere upstairs.

A seating around a wood stove is added as a pleasant lounge. From here the bedrooms and bathrooms are accessible as well.”
