Geometric Modernity: Beautiful, yet unusual house in the Netherlands has geometric fascias surrounding a modern home

17 April, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This rather unusual one-storey house is the work of Kwint Architects who have designed a modern and contemporary home for the owners. This private house has 105 square feet of living space and is situated in the amazing countryside south of the city YLD in the Netherlands. The strange exterior uses wooden planks to create a second facia to the house that allows privacy in the home, whilst still allowing light to penetrate through the gaps. Some parts of the house open out, allowing a totally unrestricted view of the countryside amongst the landscape. Inside, the interior is modern with slight classical overtones and as a spacious yet functional layout. Each piece of furniture plays an important part in the overall look and feel of this modern home.
