Built by Denieuwegeneratie this exceptional semi-underground residence named Mountain House comes with its own mountain – created as an artificial hill to camouflage the residence on the northern side. Located in a nature reserve the Dutch Mountain House measures 12 x 19 meters of bright open interiors. An interesting flexible structure on the inside allows the space to be compartmentalized according to the family’s needs. Wooden structures ensure that a future space rearrangement would be easy and creative.
Just outside the bedroom the swimming pool invites dwellers for a swim from the first morning sun ray and can be used all year round thanks to solar collectors on the roof which heat the water constantly. Sounds pretty much like a vacation retreat right?
