Custom Home's Leah Demirjian shares a Utrcht, Netherlands coach house that was renovated by a local firm using parts and materials from a disused office building on the land.

In collaboration with Dutch designer Niek Wagemans, “House of Rolf” was created for Studio's founder, Rolf Bruggink. Bruggink, with Wagemans—who specializes in working with salvaged materials—outfit the structure with a refinished wood floor and partitions, which were sourced from the demolished office’s rafters and beams, and applied aluminum roof sheathing for the bedroom and walls.

Nearly all of the furnishings in the renovated residence, including carpets, cabinets, and chairs, are also produced from recycled materials by local Dutch designers as well as Wagemans and Bruggink.
