YELLOWJAX HOME AND STUDIO
The Hague 2015-2017
A COZY STABLE CONVERSION
Situated in the cozy neighbourhood of the Regentessekwartier, the YellowJax studio is a conversion of an old horse stable in a typical Hague courtyard. Originally, the courtyard, composed out of four adjacent buildings, was home to the Greengrocer who collected all the green leftovers with horse and wagon.
When in 2015 the lot was purchased, it had been serving as a wood workshop and storage. Leaving only the outer brick walls and the main loadbearing beams, a thorough renovation project was carried that resulted in the current YellowJax Home and Studio.
LIGHT AND AIR
Since the building lays within a closed building block surrounded entirely by back gardens, the lack of windows called for an alternative plan for natural light. Six huge roof windows were installed to allow for a spectacular view to the sky that can be enjoyed all the way from the ground floor due to the grand transparent central opening that consists of five steel framed glass tables, that function as a modern compluvium.
With a completely open floor plan without any walls and 4 different floor levels a very personal and eclectic space was created that aims to comfort, welcome and inspire. Both the materials for the new construction and furniture are recovered, including the wood, steel wall panels and even the marble tiles for the floor.
