Architect: DiMase ArchitectsAbout the project (text supplied): ‘Gezellig’ is a Dutch word that is difficult to translate into English; it roughly refers to all things cosy, comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable and gregarious. This was the feeling our clients were looking for in a transformation of their converted-warehouse home and which we used to govern our design process.
