Text description provided by the architects. As a Blackbird drying it’s wings in the sun, Onix Architects' black house has landed in a rural area in the south-east part of The Netherlands.

The open side of the house, under the ‘wings of the bird’faces the beautiful view on the oldest landscape of Holland. The interior is designed in natural colours which contrasts the black Shou Sugi Ban Naoshima  exterior as does the orange beak of a male Blackbird. The house has a barn like image which closely relates to the local farm architecture.

The house with a big gable roof includes a Meeting Room, Bed & Breakfast and large private kitchen on the ground floor. The first floor contains the living room, master bed room and the chidren's ‘play ground’(three classic box beds and a bureau/climb house).
