Villa V by Paul de Ruiter Architects

The Villa V, designed by Paul de Ruiter, sits in the countryside of Bloemendaal, Netherlands. This modern house was built to preserve as much of the surrounding landscape as possible. To this end, a basement was excavated and the house set into the side of a hill. Large sliding glass walls on the upper and lower levels allow natural light to flood its interior. Interior glass walls allow that light flow through the house from one side to other. The interior is an organic mix of neutral palettes, rich textured wood and concrete.
