A dark silhouette on the horizon signifies change in rural Netherlands
This remarkable residential property is a prime example of how the Dutch landscape is being transformed. The open landscape either side of an ancient country lane forms the backdrop to this house. Like the surrounding historic farmhouses, the house has a linear layout. The contours of the sections, which are linked one behind the other, come together to form a unified, statuesque whole. The house is lengthened by the formation of the upper floor in two separate elements that are offset towards the front and rear ends. This produces a silhouette of apparently separate sections that stands out in the surrounding area. In addition, this formation leads to the creation of the requested covered terrace at the rear and a carport at the front.
