In the city centre of Utrecht the past is never far away. In this national monument from 1890, designed by architect P.J. Houtzagers, resided a princely Orange Society. After that, the stately building housed the Central Council of Appeal. Apartments were built in here in the nineties. Despite this turbulent history, the interior is still partly intact. The stairwell, the panelling, plaster and wooden ceilings and some fireplaces are reminders of times long gone. As can be seen in the old speakers' room on the ground floor, for which Remy made a new design. In it, the authentic details are naturally retained, but all the additions disappear. They make way for minimalist elements, emphasizing the classic interior. Striking additions are the entresol, the light grey moulded floor and the kitchen executed in white grey marble.
