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!
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?
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.
Besides the private spaces the common living and entertaining zones gather the family together in a carefully designed atmosphere. Overlooking agricultural fields in the backside the house was created to protect the inhabitants’ privacy while offering them private views over the quiet relaxing surroundings.
Alexander Brenner Architects designed an interesting residential construction in which two villas share the same facade. Each of the constructions has their own floor plan and atmosphere. The only things connecting them are the shared front facade and staircase.
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.
Stretching across an area of 4589 square feet this wonderful two storey building has the main living room as well as the master suite on the second level. This allows you to have a full coverage of the exciting outdoor view. The house is an exemplary example of using wood in house construction.
