Our clients’ wish was to convert their dated house into a luxurious and contemporary villa in which light and space prevail. Few constructive adjustments are needed, due to efficient measures.
The existing house is characterized by its layered structure, which remains in tact in the new design with wooden boards at the bottom and masonry at the top. In this design we cover the masonry of the house with insulation. It is then finished with stucco. The existing wooden planks are replaced by new wood and the current substructure is insulated. The front view will stay subtly closed of so that the house remains sufficiently private. The rear wall is extended and the entire rear is executed in glass. As a result, important spaces such as the kitchen and two bedrooms, which flank the transparent rear, have an unobstructed view of the garden.
