The building plays with the height difference in the landscape. The large sun-drenched bedroom – with its green and heavenly view – is located where the dunes drop downwards and is at the same time completely hidden from view. The remaining two bedrooms are on the other side of the building, where the public road runs. These, too, are not visible from a distance but have plenty of daylight due to breaks in the landscape. A large shutter in front of the living room window can be closed in order to create privacy. Skylights resembling turrets protrude from the roof and ensure that the building always has sufficient light.
The façade, comprising finely sawn oak dried in the open air gives the home its unique character and weathering only improves its appearance. The green roof completes the home’s camouflage in the landscape. It is already perceptible how, in a short period of time, the holiday home with its external spaces forms part of the overall dune landscape, as is the case with De Ville Buiten
designed by De Zwarte Hond.
