Norway’s most exciting mountain hotel?
Innovative architecture will never be dizzy, so it’s just as exciting every time a new building is presented.
This super-soft villa with the clean lines lies like a beautiful jewel in the trolley forest in the flat Dutch countryside.
The dwelling is shaped like a large “Y” over two floors, and due to municipal restrictions with regard to building heights, the bedrooms were, among other things, placed below ground level, but equally well so they get into daylight.
“Y” that opens the entire house
The house, designed by Nanne de Ru and his employees in the Powerhouse Company, was composed with three distinct columns to bring as much life-giving daylight as possible into.
All the wings were oriented makormally to the sun.
– The home is a beautiful white contrast to the lowland forests of the lowlands, commented architectural professor Einar Dahle.
Three separate wings
The library, home work and music wing is angled to the northwest, the dining and cooking area points west, while the last to the south is earmarked for living and living.
The special, characteristic Y-shape is repeated on the lower floor. Just here are the wings divided into the master bedroom, the garage and the guest and storage rooms respectively.
Curved glass wall opens the facade
The detail of the 4.5 meter wide marble sliding door that opens the curved living room glass wall to the terrace is just one of the many sensational features of this house, says design and art historian Natascha Drabbe in an email to click. no
A frame with glass
The house is built around a chalk white, load-bearing frame that makes it possible to put huge windows into the three wings above the ground.
– They are all pretty narrow, and floor-to-ceiling windows bring light and landscape far into the house to make it almost transparent, says Nanne de Ru to click.com
Heart of the house
The three narrow wings or “fingers” meet in a center that is both hall, dining room, bar and music room. This is the house’s vital, throbbing heart.
Sensational Decoration Elements
Villa 1 also features three very special interior sections.
In the north wing is a softly curved furniture-like nut tree element that “extinguishes” both stairs to the lower floor, a bed and a small bathroom. Exterior, this playful curve creates room for both a home office and a nice space for the piano.
The kitchen is the second original, architectural-style interior designed in large format.
It is made entirely of dark, Norwegian slate and contains everything you would expect from a kitchen décor, plus a toilet and a bar.
The third and last decorative element stands as a partition wall with a little space on both sides, in the middle of the living room and with glass to both sides. This hollow wall of concrete houses both a solid fireplace, storage room and a video projector.
In addition, the huge bed that is shaped as a single wall-mounted furniture in the room.
Price crossing over Nanne de Rue
Recently, Villa 1 was honored with The Maskaant Prize for Young Architects.
For this reason, the jury stated: “The villa is stunningly beautiful and with its roomy lushness it immediately became a modern classic. “
In 2008, Villa1, Nanne de Ru and Powerhouse Company won the AM / NAI Prize and the Dutch Design Award.
In 2009, the architects and the house were awarded the award “Europe 40 Under 40 – Award for Best Emerging Young Architects and Designers.
Following up the pioneers
– This is elite architecture. Villa 1 draws the threads back to one of the first famous modernist villas, the architect Mies van der Rohe’s Villa Tugendhat built in Czech Republic in 1928, says architect Tord Kvien to click. no.
Both houses use advanced building technology to make the home look easy and elegant.
