The design of the building refers to an archetype: a ground floor building with a high pyramidal roof (cf. dutch stolpboerderij, the origin of the female resident is the Netherlands), but it gets its own sig nature by not placing the tip of the roof centrally.
The house is completely open on the front and the back because of the beautiful view on the landscape, the sides are closed to ensure the privacy of the residents.
The house consits of a common residential level on theground floor and a first floorwithbedrooms in the volume of the roof. Sincetheground level at the site wherethe house is build wasabout 1.20 meters abovestreet level, an underground garage, workshop andentrance was provided below theresidential level. Thisobvious solution optimizesthequality of living on theground floor duetothe absence of adisturbinggarage space.
The first floor extends in the width, with long, narrow windows that frame the green environment as the setting of a painting. Upstairs, the rooms are narrow, but high thanks to the pyramid roof.
The height and the alternating inclination of the roof create a special spaciousness in the bedrooms.
The materials of the roof and facade are identical: like an apple with red-green peel that shows his fresh flesh as soon as you cut it open, so the homogeneous skin of the roof and facades captures the white interior.
