In 2017 Lianne van Engelen, interior designer and driving force behind Studio Linn, was approached for the complete renovation and alterations to a house built in the 1930s in Oisterwijk. The owners wanted a home that looked authentic but which was furnished with the latest features, including security. For door fittings that not only match the atmosphere of the house, but also comply with the latest security standards, Studio Linn approached Intersteel for well-founded advice.
The entire house was completely stripped, and fitted with new lighting, floors, double glazing and electrics. Even the structure of the house changed. Rooms were transformed and received a new, more appropriate function. Lianne van Engelen explained, “It was important not to lose the authenticity of the house, so we combined new, modern materials with original elements, including the interior doors.” Building was completed at the end of 2018.
Intersteel was approached by Studio Linn to advise on the door and window fittings for the home in Oisterwijk. Maarten ter Horst explained, “The hinges and locks didn’t just have to go with the style of the house, but also meet modern requirements in respect of security. After studying all the plans and window and door details and after good consultation, the chrome and ebony fittings were chosen from the Ton 400 series. This was done for both the interior and the exterior and satisfied all the current security standards 100 percent.”
