On an exposed and windswept site, Villa JM by dreessen willemse architecten offers a place of refuge that balances a feeling of privacy and seclusion with expansive panoramic views over the water.
The volumes of the villa combine to form enclosed indoor and outdoor space on three sides. Outdoor areas include a semi-open patio with swimming pool and terrace, as well as a patio off the kitchen and dining area.
On the western side of the house, adjacent to the living room, the building volume is pushed forward, like a pavilion, projecting over the water’s edge and offering a unique vantage point to take in sunsets.
The sleek brick cladding presents a solid character, supporting the private and secluded nature of the design. The front façade is largely closed, with only one window. Upon entering the house, the space opens up to reveal spectacular views towards the water.
