Frisian traditions with a modern twist! On the North Sea island of Foehr the former hayloft of an old farmhouse has been converted into an unusual holiday apartment. The architects compare the apartment to a stranded ship. They used traditional design elements such as tiles, which were used in Frisian houses as typical wall surfaces. The main walls of the apartment are decorated with over 3000 tiles that reflect the light and brighten the room. Each tile has a hand-drilled hole which reveals the blue coloured cement. The blue colour also appears on the ropes flanking the staircase and create a maritime feel. Even the bedrooms are decorated in a typical Frisian colour. They resemble traditional alcoves and illuminate the open dining and living rooms through translucent doors.
