THE MODERN INTERPRETATION OF THE TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE
The design was looking for a way to fit into the rural context and at the same time meet modern demands. The obvious approach was to interpret the farmhouse in a contemporary way: the massive base floor with a light-looking wooden structure above it offers optimal use and fits harmoniously into its urban context.
The traditional division of use between ground floor and upper floor has been incorporated into the design, but has been broken up in favor of a modern use of space on the ground floor. The floor plan offers a generous living and dining area that runs across corners, creating a contained situation. An L-shaped living area with adjoining terrace gently blends into the flat lawn, gently digging into the landscape and creating both connection and intimacy. The central shooting axis in the entrance area leads up to the upper floor. At the top, laid across so to speak, is the sleeping area, two children’s rooms with bathrooms to the west, a parent’s room with bathroom and dressing room to the east.
