Modern classic villa in Muiden, The Netherlands


In the wooded new construction plan 'De Krijgsman' we had the opportunity to realize this contemporary villa. The villa is situated on an inland waterway on a beautiful forest plot. 

The living spaces on the first floor are equipped with large glass facades to optimally enjoy the surrounding nature. Large overhangs provide containment of the sun radiation. The overhangs and canopy form a powerful horizontal line that is characteristic of many of our designs.  The upper floor features a carefully detailed gable roof with aluminum flashing and open end walls.

The materialization is on the one hand industrial in the form of glass and dark metal, on the other hand warm and earthy in the form of broken natural stone cladding. 

The shell of the house is entirely made of wood prefabricated in CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) and assembled on site in 1 week. The house is thus built in a sustainable way but also has a pleasant indoor climate by the heat-accumulating effect of the wood.
