Design harmonious new-build villa

The Netherlands

We designed a modern new-build villa in a beautiful spot on the edge of the forest. The architectural style is balanced and modest in use of materials.

But with, among other things, wooden cladding, a green roof and solar panels, the house is almost energy neutral. The materials have a modest character with a direct link to the environment, forming a whole with the landscape. We use a hand-baked Gelderland brick that is produced locally and that has a link with the past of the Waal area with its brick factories. In this way, the architecture establishes both a direct and an indirect connection with the location.

The house is made up of two stacked volumes, the upper volume of which has a subordinate character. The architecture has a clear direction. In the direction of the village there is mainly masonry. Wood is dominant towards the forest and the Waal. The continuous link with the masonry indicates a clear direction.

The landscape design, with a lush garden, enhances the house and forms a whole with the adjacent nature reserve.
