Our dear friend, Adriana (thank you!) proudly suggested this wonder of architecture, awarded by her fellow countrymen with the Dutch Design Award for Best Private Interior.
It’s called Villa 1 and is made by the Dutch design agency Powerhouse Company through the joined design efforts of Charles Bessard, Nanne de Ru and Anne Luetkenhues for the interior design. Villa 1 is located in the woods of Holland and was designed to touch excellence in surroundings perspective and living comfort under strict local zoning regulations.
The special regulations pushed half of the project below ground with spaces carved out of the mass. I was most surprised with the shape of this house and the way it was worked around the nature. And another element worth considering closely – the bookshelf that looks more like a structural element than furniture. If you’re looking for an awarded artsy living space and you have little to hide, you may consider Villa 1 by Powerhouse Company.
