designed the sublime ‘Villa BH’ in Burgh-Haamstede, the Netherlands, over a 2874 square feet floor area. The impressive, almost transparent, structure stands predominantly as glass walls, framed out in white, with natural wood cladding to the roof edge, and sides. A jetty leads through the garden façade, crossing a pebble edged body of still water, between the glass rear entrance and an impressive garden house.
The home encircles a tree inhabited courtyard within its glass walls, giving each room a dual aspect. When the vast clear doors are pushed back, the dwelling becomes an outdoor space, flooded with light and breeze, and the ability to walk room to room under the sky. A roof terrace extends the exterior living space further, and a brick chimneystack serves indoor and outdoor wood burners to warm the entire area.
A sedum roof, heat pump, and solar panels make this an eco friendly home, and a clean, minimalist decor suggests simple living. A neutral palette of white walls, light wood, and muted textiles keeps the interior light and bright, and an open plan living style continues throughout, seeing master bedroom complete with bathtub, basins and en suite steam room, and unobstructed views out to the patio.
