House Vvg / Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten

House Vvg / Grosfeld van der Velde Architecten © Michel Kievits © Michel Kievits © Michel Kievits

From the architect. The house is situated on the edge of Vianen, a city in the centre of Holland. The view on the southwest side is magnificent and will remain unbuilt. The beautiful view is that of a typical Dutch landscape of open fields with lines of trees.

As a limiting condition for this site the city prescribed a gutter height of 4 meter and a country style of building.

Form and material remind traditional ways of building in the Dutch countryside, although the house has a distinct character as opposed to the prefabricated country-style of the other houses in the street.

The house is designed from the inside out, as a series of connected spaces. Within the whole each space has its own character and its own relation with the landscape.
