From the architect. Located in the outskirts of the city of Breda, on the edge of the urban and rural zone, this house is provided with great views. The clients preferred a maximum volume on this plot and asked the Dutch architects Grosfeld van der Velde to turn this desire into reality.

They designed a house with a square floor plan of 15 x 15 meters, stacked up over 3 levels. The ground floor is raised above the surrounding land, so daylight can enter the half-sunken basement. By lifting the ground floor, the view from the living area of the natural environment is astonishing.
