From the architect. The Ronald McDonald House is located on Voordijk in Barendrecht. The brief asked for an environment that would offer a sense of security, a place in which families could relax, meet one another and exchange experiences. The roof of the existing farmhouse was extended and folded to create a three-quarter square with an enclosed garden to the south.

The stepped roof has a gradual slope and features warm Portuguese slate. Exterior walls surrounding the garden are made of glass and wood and allow a great deal of daylight to enter spaces inside the building, such as the living room and circulation routes. Several French windows connect indoor and outdoor areas. Guest rooms and rooms housing mechanical systems line the main façade. Offices are in the old building. A stairwell at the entrance lends direct access to guest rooms on the first floor. A library and computer room share the upper floor of the old building. Unlike the old farmhouse, with its cowhide foundation, these rooms rest on newly added steel piles.

We're a gaggle of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website offered us with helpful info to work on. You've performed an impressive activity and our entire community will probably be thankful to you.

I do consider all the concepts you've introduced in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Wonderful project. It is great to see architect creating creative bold designs for social institutions instead of just for rich developers and museums.

Great work... very sensitive to the existing context without resorting to mimicry. Nicely defined outdoor space. Clean materials and details. Two thumbs up from me.

Very nice! I like this type of buildings... little bit abstract... but realisable and to the point at once...
