"Living in a design exhibition"

During the Dutch Design Week you could “wander” through a house full of design; the new home of the designers and curators Studio Thier & van Daalen. They temporarily lived in a design exhibition and open the doors to the public. They were happy to show their own recently renovated 1960s house with a studio at home designed by architects W. van Hagen and J. Hurkmans. The unique style of the house, of nine houses in a row, three stories high each, is better known as the 'Bossche School'. Space and balanced proportions play an important role as well as the materials wood, concrete and brickwork.

After Iris van Daalen en Ruben Thier became the proud owners of this building at the beginning of this year, they have rebuilt, renovated, and designed a lot by themselves, preserving the beautiful windows, voids, steel stairs and special architectural details. 'A beautiful architectural experiment', they call it themselves.
