Rooftop Apartment Stationsweg

the Netherlands, The Hague
In assignment of Teun Blijenberg we provided the design and technical drawings for a rooftop apartement and extension of the second floor of an apartment in the centre of The Hague.

The shape of the extension on the roof of a three-storey building is partly determined by the regulations. From the gutter, the roof slopes back, creating a modest volume. On the roof of the extension on the second floor is a large roof terrace.

The extension consists of a light timber-frame construction clad in zinc, a material that contrasts with the existing building to create a distinction between the old and the new. The new window frames are bronze anodised to show the natural shine of aluminium to match the natural look of zinc.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Interior
The middle of the roof extension is surrounded by the roofs from the neighbours, to provide this section of the appartment with enough daylight we designed two big skylights. One above the stairs and one in the large bedroom at the backside of the apartment.
Adding two bedrooms in the new third floor makes it possible to make the whole second floor an open space, and adding the extension on the second floor creates a new room that can provide a flexible enclosed room for reading, studying or resting.
