This villa, designed by Engel Architecten, is located in a newly formed residential area called Blauwestad in the northern part of the Netherlands. Translated, Blauwestad means Blue city. This name has been given because of the fact that the whole area is surrounded by an artificial lake especially created for this new development.
The designscheme is based on a simple square with the living areas situated on the ground floor and the bedrooms situated on the upper level. Daylight and direct sunlight can enter the hart of the house through a serie of voids with skylights above.
