Design and construction of a detached dwelling.
In the historical Vechtstreek today most houses are still built traditional-looking. Fokkema & Partners was given the opportunity to build a modern villa with the use of contextual, rich and solid materials. A massive saddle roof of the archetypical volume seems to be floating on the transparent ground floor facade, opening the spacious living spaces towards the surrounding garden. Cuts in the roof-volume are made to create extra room on the first floor. To highlight the entrance and to give the villa a more vertical and distinguished appearance, a continuous white plaster band frames the cut-out.
