Family home in the north
Work in progress
We are currently developing the exterior of a family home in the north of Holland.
This project embodies a blend of community, privacy, and harmony with nature.
We’ve been commissioned to create a phase 1 design for the building shell of a spacious detached villa. In doing this, we’ve taken into account the dimensions of the interior spaces.
Our design approach respects the local architecture while infusing a fresh, modern twist. The structure of the house is straightforward – a lengthy, single-story building topped with a distinctive roof, echoing typical homes in the region. We’ve carefully placed and sized windows and doors to visually disrupt the structure.
Its unique character shines in the way we’ve utilized materials and designed the facade openings. Drawing inspiration from local red brick buildings, we’ve opted for a warm brown color for the brickwork. This decision blends the house into its surroundings, creating a visual connection with the local area.
To offer contrast, we’ve employed lighter grey shades for the window frames, gutters, and roof extension, adding a modern twist to the color scheme. A grey wooden pergola bridges the different areas of the ground floor and extends them into the outdoor space. A variety of textures and a visually intriguing look is created through the use of brickwork, concrete, and steel window frames. The roof is covered in ceramic slates, while the gutters, rainwater pipes, and roof extensions are crafted from quartz zinc.
This family home is a testament to how traditional architecture can evolve into a modern narrative. We eagerly anticipate the completion of this project.
