We have already written about a balanced, elegant and luxurious project designed by interior designer Niels Maier. Now we take you to another one of the Dutchman's realisations, a minimalist renovation project located in Limburg. An attempt was made to retain much of the original structure and to complement the rooms with natural materials and handicrafts.
Imagicasa takes you to The Rough House, where Niels Maier was responsible for the interior design. The project is inspired by the craft elements of the original building, creating a beautiful contrast between the raw and the rustic. The house is on a list of monuments, so it is bathed in authenticity. The ambition was to bring together the well-preserved past with the relevant present.
The main drivers are warmth and texture.
Maier wanted his interior design to focus on the experience of each space, creating honest, inviting rooms that intertwined with the existing exterior. Furthermore, the interior designer felt it was important to work with craftsmen. Thanks to them, his selection of materials and furniture feels very thoughtful and you look at the handmade pieces with great admiration. The main drivers for this project were warmth and textures. Together with the layering in ceramics, metal, plaster and wooden elements, the house is brought back to life. With precision and a clear vision from Niels Maier, The Rough House is all about robustness and novelty, adding strength to the story of this historic beauty. In short, thanks to the deliberate minimalism, Niels Maier gives this home a new purpose that beautifully embraces its past.
