Once a museum, now a luxury home

Rotterdam-based studio Peña Architecture transformed the former Kralings Museum in Rotterdam into a luxury apartment building called Casa K. The space features  three spacious apartments designed with a contemporary, open layout and bright sunlight streaming throughout.

Architect Gabriel Peña’s main challenge was to create a sleek, modern design in perfect harmony with the city’s preservation requirements. The main focus of the architectural concept is a walnut wooden cube that extends from the ground level through the top floor.

The staircase allows light to stream down into the lower levels of the building that open out onto a backyard garden. The natural light which invades the building and the fresh white walls througout the house contrast with the central walnut cube, the steel railing, the black appliances and lighting fixtures, the aluminum kitchen cabinets, and the dark stained wood bookshelves.

The final result is a spectacular conversion of a museum into luxe living, a space where design, confort and luxury details live side by side in perfect harmony.
