What An Entry!

With the entry to the plot on the south side a creative design solution seems in the making 

From the street totally hidden garage doors, integrated in the buildings volume, the only thing catching you’re eye is the wooden cladded porch that leads the the entry of the house 

Sheltered from the elements under the porch one enters the house looking straight through the hall into the East garden while waiting for the resident 

Surrounded By Porches

Having outdoor places where daily activity can happen

Having the year throughout outdoor places, sheltered from sun, exposed to the sun, sheltered from wind and rain and sometimes in a nice breeze 

The total of 150 m2 terrace surrounding the house divided over 4 porches can be used according to ones needs

Having a small porch for an intimate afternoon coffee or high tea

A larger porch as an extended dinning room or a calm place to study for it’s resident daughters students

So make sure throughout the year you have outdoor places to hang around, to lunch, to light a fire, to dance, to play, to have drinks or read a book

It's All About Materials And Details

The design of the building can be looked at like a carved out metal volume where the carved out parts are like eye sockets

The metal volume made of hot diped galvanised, which blends it in to nature

The eye sockets, the intermediates between indoors and outdoors and are cladded with thermowood

The eye’s itself are full glass, window frames are hidden and are made of wood (low carbon footprint)
