From the architect. A nice house with a steel skin. You can also see it on 3D over Google Maps.

The facades and the roof of this dwelling comprise one entity. The skin, consisting of anthracite-coloured corrugated sheets, is open in strategic places in order to let the environment in. Maximizing this effect, the entire dwelling is positioned one meter above ground level, resulting on a spacious lower ground floor.

The exterior of the dwelling looks rather solid and closed. The interior experience is one of beautiful spatial impressions.
