This recently renovated apartment is located in the pleasant neighborhood of Valkenboskwartier, just a stone’s throw from all the shops on Weimar and Fahrenheitstraat. The beautiful house was built at the beginning of the last century, but the gloomy conditions required a complex renovation because it did not meet the current demands of living standards. Instead of an open and light space, the original arrangement only offered a number of small and dark rooms …
The new design has changed everything. Thanks to the extension at the rear, two very spacious bedrooms is been created. The ground floor is an open space with many playful corners that does not compromise access to daylight. The open space has a very unique shape of the letter L and offers to use the space in different ways based on the occasion and preference of the owner. The kitchen is set up as a central point in the middle, in this way it is comfortably connected to the dining room which also provides access through the patio doors to the garden, as well as to the living room at the front of the house. The rear of the house consists of the two spacious bedrooms and the bathroom.
Celsius is a temperature scale named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744), who first proposed this scale in 1742.
The buildings in the Valkenboskwartier are characterized by continuous facade walls in the building line.
The majority of the buildings have a three-storey construction with a flat roof or hood, in which the Neo-Renaissance and transition architecture
if the architectural movement of sober brick is decisive for the facade image.
This house had a flat roof and the roof structure was realized on this.

The Celsiusstraat is a side street of the Weimarstraat, with a wide range of specialty shops, larger chains and various catering establishments.
Weimarstraat is also a shopping street where activities are often organized, such as local markets and fairs.
A street festival is organized in both spring and summer, combining a Home Made Market, a Food Truck Festival and a child-free market.
The Valkenboskwartier, located in the former Mientpolder, owes its name to the former country estate Valkenbosch at the intersection of the Valkenboskade and the Mient. The country estate was demolished in 1857.
The urban development is in fact a continuation of the urban design of Regentessekwartier largely based on the street plan of ir. I.A. Lindo. A large number of streets that lead from the Regentessekwartier to the Beeklaan continue in the Valkenboskwartier. Due to the comparable urban design, the continuation of the street pattern and the built-up image, both neighborhoods almost merge.
The area enclosed by the Weimarstraat, Valkenboskade, Laan van Meerdervoort and Fahrenheitstraat, which was the last part to be built between about 1910-1915, is part of Lindo’s expansion plan from 1903 and taken over by Berlage (1908).
The Weimarstraat quickly acquired an important shopping function, which was further strengthened in the course of the 20th century. In Beeklaan, Edisonstraat, Copernicusstraat and to a lesser extent Laan van Meerdervoort and Valkenboskade, the original residential function has been partly replaced by non-residential functions such as retail, services and catering.
