Dutch Riverside Chic: Transito Maritime Office by Eric Kant 1

In a unique combination of living and work space, this office with a “maritime” feel features a skybox apartment in bold, contemporary style by the Netherlands’ Eric Kant. Overlooking the Merwede River, part of the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta, it’s a soaring, angular design that allows for vistas of the river from almost any work space, features an airy, open concept, and presents a clean, uncluttered ambience thanks to tons of storage space cleverly camouflaged behind reflective-surface cabinetry. There’s no sterile feel here, though; white file cabinets topped with abundant greenery in rectangular planters, combined with warm wood grain desks and chocolate-toned leather seating and accents, give the space a nice shot of efficient energy while at the same time keeping the “trimmings” from being obtrusive or distracting.

Sand-colored marble on part of the exterior façade harmonizes nicely with a neat planted garden, dark stone driveways, and cobbled courtyards. Parking is convenient and sheltered; inviting outdoor seating provides a handy spot for fresh air on breaks. And, although the building is a neat tower of intersecting rectangles, there are at least as many “curves” involved in this design as angles; private office spaces and conference rooms have rounded glass walls in flowing, gentle waves that are not unlike the river water outside. Round conference tables encourage easy collaboration, while curvy glass vases hold flowers and colorful décor that inject a cheery note. With elegance, uncompromising practicality, and abundant natural light, this office/apartment offers roomy space for both employees and family, thanks to superb design by Eric Kant.
