Stand-alone villa + office
This villa has a magnificent view over the countryside on the opposite side of the street. At the rear, a natural green area forms a buffer. To the south, there is a pond bordering on the villa’s property line flanked by a row of trees. This creates the optical illusion that the plot of land is deeper than it actually is. The buffer at the rear attracts the viewer’s attention. The pond is partially covered by a terrace made out of bankirai wood. This creates the illusion of a jetty. To the north, the plot of land is bounded by a zone with low-level vegetation. The home’s architectural style was conceived so that indoor and outdoor areas blend seamlessly with one another.
The indoor areas were optimally embedded within the surrounding countryside by designing the home to be as open as possible. Its decentralization provides a line of sight through to the landscaped buffer area at the rear. The architectural style is one of frugality and unpretentiousness. Two grey medium-height blocks were fitted together beneath a single roof with large eaves. The connection between the blocks and roof was achieved using large expanses of glass providing a high degree of transparency. Incisions in the roof provide a view across the magnificent countryside. Large terraces have been built along the extrapolated lines of the interior areas.
