Close to Bloemendaal, on the edge of the Kennemer dunes, the site of Villa Bloemendaal is situated. A sustainable home that follows a minimalistic design and shows respect for man and nature alike, in a unique residential area where the existing flora and fauna are given full rein.
i29 interior architects worked on the interior of a villa which was designed by Paul de Ruiter archi- tects. A minimal approach to the materialisation and detailing of the building is a core value of both the interior and exterior design. The large expanses of glass and the patio result in maximum day- lighting and give the inhabitants the feeling that the villa and the surrounding landscape are one.
In order to bring nature inside even more, all of the interior functions in the house are made from natural materials. i29 interior architects created large surfaces of wood through the whole house to connect the different areas. Cabinets, wardrobes, walls, sliding doors, beds and even a fire place have been made in one and the same material. Pine wood panels -normally a basic material- has been used as a high end finishing with fine details.
