From the architect. Inarchitecten is an agency that taken the innermost space as the most important design criterion. From the inner work is, literally and figuratively, architecture that is original and unique. The exterior, certainly not least, here is a logical consequence of.
Draft items we handle are; ambiguity , originality and daring. This must result in an original architectural whole, with the desire of the client and the essence of each task is to top.
In this project, a private house for a family with three children, we tried to show the two different situations at each facade. There is a street site and a water site.
The accommodation on the water, the IJ lake, a house with three layers and a integrated garage to the street side.
The front, at the street side, is relatively closed, has small window openings and 'high' parapets with strong outside walls.
The wall material at the front facade (north side) is a dark-colored fiber cement board. Behind the Fiber-cement shutters the bedrooms are placed. It is a perfect light resistance (also a good cold resistance) for the bedrooms of children.
