Nick and Tatiana have recently moved to the old prison in Rotterdam. I took them 7 years of fighting for a place on the waiting list to making the design for the interior and creating it. From the outside you can see the history of the building with its cell wings, thick walls and bars. Where everyone used to avoid the building, people now peek in curiously. Understandable because the rough exterior contrasts quite a bit with the colourful, playful interior and special lamps. They were creative as possible with a house of “2 cells wide”. You can see this, for example, in the 5-meter high cupboard that runs right through the floor from the kitchen to the living room above it, and the bathroom with its playful layout. And of course elements of the past have also remained, such as an old cell door for our toilet. The working spot of their company ‘Taatdicht’ is located on the top floor. They design and make lamps which beautifully illuminate the houses of others. Ultimately, light is the most important thing in an interior.
