Historic & Modern Merge - Maff Studio

Cool architectural designs where traditional and modern merge; this is an absolute gem – The Maff Studio. It’s a masterpiece housed inside of a refurbished townhouse and designed by RDKA. Located in the center of The Hague, the Maff studio resides in between historic buildings, and thus juxtaposes the modern with the historic. The house features a private entrance, heated flooring. The ground floor has all the amenities needed for private life, with a completely modern kitchen, a washer and dryer, as well as all the standard appliances needed for a home. An open staircase leads up to the first floor. The first floor has a lounge featuring a Dutch 3-seater sofa, an entertainment unit and the master bedroom. You will be amazed at the different custom designed lighting selection in the Maff Studio – some eye catching and mood setting choices.

The beauty of the apartment, however, lies in its interior design. Maff uses three separate open spaces, each with a unique feel and character. Together, the three spaces instill a feeling of peacefulness and contentment in anyone. The designer crafted furniture and lighting provide the inhabitant with modern surroundings, which go in stark contrast to the neighborhood where the building is located. However, the contrast only serves to further underline the uniqueness of the home. The industrial-looking metallic railing on the upstairs lounge is a nice touch, bringing in a bit of roughness to the otherwise tranquil interior design. In fact, most of the metal in the apartment is unpainted stainless steel, coming together at strong angles. One thing is certain; one would never get bored of living in the Maff Studio.

You can find more photos of the Maff Studio RDKA’s website as well as on the website of the Maff Studio itself.

If I ever decide to return to den Haag, the Maff Studio will surely be my preferred choice of accommodation.
