Residence L by Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten:
“The present landscape, the orientation to the rural surroundings and the organizing situations were the choosing elements in the siting of the dwelling at the rear of the plot. The ground floor was raised with respect to the recent ground level, with massive glass surfaces positioned to appear out above the rural landscape and terraces running the length of the creating with an unbroken roof surface on corbelling, all of which permit the outer area to be seasoned to the full. At the identical time, the large roof projections are developed to stop too significantly light coming into.
The ground floor may be described as a single, open area the place the massive volumes and the project-oriented layout of the interior provide a further connection with the outdoors. It accommodates the major living functions, with all rooms flowing seamlessly into 1 one more. The annexe accommodates a variety of ancillary functions, with the outside swimming pool housed in an extension. Both volumes are linked underground by a basement level in which the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated. Right here also, the landscaping of the grounds and the big glass windows enable for exceptional views more than the surrounding landscape. The office and playroom are sited in a separate basement location under the residing space.
Vertical Western Red Cedar boarding was picked for the façade cladding, and the roof has a moss-sedum roof covering. The restrained detailing mixed with the form and the resources selected give Residence L an ultra-modern day visual appeal, but one particular that is fully at house in its rural surroundings.”First Level
