location: wervershoof, the netherlands
client: Fam. Ooteman-Weel
gross floor area: 175 m2
The young clients with a tight budget desired a residence with a staircase in the livingroom, a drumstudio at the ground floor and a walk-in closet. Besides that, their eclectic taste in furniture should be accomodated in the design with the possibility to integrate a house-automation system in the future. These wishes were translated into two walls (which can be read as utilized poché) that accmodate the utilitarian elements, unite the future eclectic interior and offers liberty in the interior arrangement.
The two walls are executed in wood on the interior for a warm appearance, and covered in traditional masonry on the exterior of the residence to connect widththe project-based housing in the rest of the new neighborhood. The remaining façades are clad with dark facade panels, for budget reasons and as a reference to the agricultural barns which decorate the meadows around the town and the neigborhood.
