Stone and Glass House Design Blended With Stunning Natural Surroundings

Soul quieting nature holds in the grounds of HOUSE BRAS, a project by architect team DDM Architectuur. The design process for this home included careful research around hours of daylight during changing seasons and how insolation could be maximised. Panoramic views of the surrounding landscape was also of paramount importance, as was blending the home sympathetically with its location. The solution is an architectural layout shaped to bend around features of the green landscape, set right between a pond and a small lake, and to welcome in every drop of available sunlight. The house is covered entirely with natural stone slabs, including roofs and facades, blending it completely with its surroundings.
