Beach inspired residence in Breda, Netherlands by Grosfeld van der Velde studio
One of studio Grosfeld van der Velde‘s creations caught our attention today. Located in the vicinity of the city of Breda, in the Netherlands, the residence was constructed taking into account the potential panoramas of the nearby lake. Wide floor-to-ceiling windows were mounted on the facade and a wooden terrace extends the boundaries of the house to the garden. The small hillside that served as a construction surface helps the house look like it is floating.
The inhabitants love the beach, so one of the requests was to keep that relaxed feeling intact. Architects working on the construction created sand dunes and accentuated them with wood fences, winning them the Dutch Garden 2009 prize.
The house also had to be part residential, part home office, so the architects from Grosfeld van der Velde needed to compartment the residence in a smart way. Everything turned out great for both the office space and the residential space, creating a complimenting interior and exterior design.
