“Asymmetry can at first view seem uncontrolled and random,
while actually creating the perfect flow”
The division of this beautiful neck-gable 1670 canal house into three parts meant that it was full of asymmetry and very incoherent, feeling out of balance.
This former dairy farm in the rural area around Utrecht was transformed into a spectacular residential home.
This project is all about integration: the villa, the coach house, the garden and the residents’ personalities and lifestyle. All of these stories were bundled into one, using the disciplines of architectural design, interior architecture and styling. A new routing turned the confined layout and mismatched styles into one cohesive, open character full of light.
The basis of this old country house from around 1900, once housing a notary, lacked atmosphere and living comfort. Interrupting part of the structure and routing by opening up a closed wall with the use of an eye-catching aged brass facade between the central hall and the dining room, created openness and movement.
