Geometries are brilliantly selected to make the building spacious enough out of a given limited area. Horizontal hinges are an example of their innovation and the hinges make the wooden pallets to shrink horizontally. This provides a large opening into the outer world despite the limited interior. Care has been given in every step of the Ame Lot Project to avoid stress on the ecology. And the Ame Lot seems to be an epitome of eco-friendly design.
There is a separate dining room for family off the kitchen. The fashionable kitchen sports all kinds of modern utensils arranged neatly and organized. Garage servant’s space and general purpose spaces are located in a level below.
The house appears to be a brilliant option from an economical point of view. It utilizes every scope for natural methods of power conservation like natural cross ventilation a geo-thermal heating and cooling system and the double-paneled roof. These facilities ensure cool and nice living for residents in this house. Also energy charges could be trimmed down significantly.
The eastern half features an open floor plan with large spaces and a dynamic layout easily accessible from the garage. Here inhabitants benefit from a master suite including a 14-metre long dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a glazed wine cellar. The dining area has ample room for a gathering of guests. The living area can also hold a family reunion.
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.
By choosing a color palette that would compliment the surroundings, the architects dissolved the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and prolonged the dynamic coastline inside. An open floor plan allowed the creation of an L-shaped cooking/living/entertaining zone open to the outside deck and swimming pool. And also check out the Bloom Chair by Kenneth Cobonpuere featured a while back on Decoist – it looks amazing in this house!
Designed to meet the needs of one family the western half of the duplex displays a floor plan made out of many rooms. A circular staircase joins the levels in this side.
