There is no transition between landscape and roof of the extension. The countryside creeps in the roof construction at the existing house, it creates harmony between living and environment.

View

Routing

The formal entrance on Beekman Dalseweg maintained. By entering the sight line, through the entire width of the house, gives you the view on the lateral moraine on the west side. This creates a logical routing, running past the kitchen into the living room one is received. Here opens the property by overlooking the Ooypolder.

Rust rests
