Description
In an area between forest and dunes there is a villa between rough pine trees. The house is like an abstract object anchored in the sloping landscape. It is like a rock coming up through the ground. In the seemingly small contrast there is actually a powerful interaction between landscape and building. Slopes of the surrounding area are strengthened, so daylight can enter all the way down to the basement. Because of this interference there is an exceptional view on the garden from this level. With the manipulation of the landscape we also solved the parking and the villa gets different façade characters all around. At one sight the tree layers of the house are completely visible and at the other sight it is more hidden in the landscape.

  • In an area between forest and dunes there is a villa between rough pinetrees. The house is like an abstract object anchored in the sloping landscape.

  • Thesculptural building interacts with the surrounding landscape. It 'pushes' a fewvolumes and terraces into the surrounding landscape. In that way the terraces arenot part of the garden design but they are transformed into an extension of theresidence.

    Thereis also a strong dialog between building and landscape trough the use ofmaterials.
    Thestony façade anchors the villa to the ground and the pinewood of the facadesrefers directly to the Pine tree forest. The house becomes with its form andmaterial an abstract response by men on the context of the landscape.
