Renovation of a 1920s house
I wanted the 1920s house that I bought from my mother to be completely renovated to a light and sleek house with a natural look. I already knew a bit of what format I wanted to make and I wanted to use wooden floors, natural stone and mosaic. I went looking for an architect who knew how to translate what I liked and knew how to make everything into a harmonious whole. I wanted an architect who helped me make choices. I chose Gosker Design.
The house is now finished and I enjoy it very much. Marij and David listened to my needs and they have divided the house otherwise. They have removed some walls so the rooms are bigger and moved the bathroom so there was more privacy, the house has become lighter and the way you walk through the house became logical. With the design of the rooms the really looked at the function so that I now have enough clothing space, a nice place to have a dining table and seating area or to have a place where I can iron handy.
Marij and David have an eye for detail, beautiful floors that run from one into the other room, detailing of the window frames and moldings, the grouting of the tiles in horizontal plane nicely go on in the vertical plane. I am also very pleased with the lighting that they have made.
It found it hard to make choices and they gave me a lot of stress, this I had misjudged in me. Marij was a great support. What I also had misjudged was the whole construction supervision. Beforehand I thought the work of an interior designer was especially a beautiful functional design. We worked with a friendly competent Polish contractor who wanted to do everything, but which needed to be controlled by Marij and David on how to make everything otherwise it would never have become such a tight house. David has a lot of architectural understanding which the house is also enhanced architectural, such as insulation, strengthen the ceilings and window frames.
I experienced Marij and David as fine people who were always involved in the renovation.
