From the architect. When i asked the architect about the rabbits on the pictures, he told me their refer to the white rabbit Alice follows to Wonderland. As he describes on the project´s description Villa Peet was designed as a sequence of contrasting spatial experiences. These contrasts create a feeling of entering new worlds behind a series of rabbit holes.

Villa Peet was designed as a sequence of contrasting spatial experiences. These contrasts create a feeling of entering new worlds behind a series of rabbit holes. The absence of traditional interior doors gives the ground floor a sence of continuity, although the different space are well defined.

On the upper floor the guest rooms are divided from the private bedrooms by the voids in the kitchen. Seen from the street the house seems to be a very closed volume without windows and just one corner with glass and a door. Despite this first impression the house is very light and transparant and gives views to the garden from everywhere in the house. The rooms are orientated to the sides and the back because of the clients wish for privacy.

The plans are organised in a way that the further from the street they are more private they become.
