Landscape House IV: Prototype Prefab

The design for this holiday home in the forested part of the dunes in Bergen aan Zee partly buries the building into the dune landscape to integrate it into the surrounding natural and built environment. Referencing the trunks of the surrounding trees, the first floor is a dark open wooden framework that seems to float on the base formed by the landscape and the basement. The mostly transparent ground floor opens the house to the surroundings while strategically-placed wooden louvres provide privacy and shading.
