Text description provided by the architects. Villa Broeck is a detached private residence, adjacent to a nature reserve in the Netherlands. In this natural setting, Bedaux de Brouwer Architecten designed the building, the garden and its interior. The plot is located between a series of detached houses built along a crescent.
Villa Broeck has the same shape as the surrounding volumes, however it has been rotated through 90 degrees in relation to its neighbours. Placing the building transversely creates a dramatic street elevation as well as a beautiful outlook to the scenery behind the house. Furthermore, it creates two special spaces: a patio as an entrance area and a sunken patio in the garden.
A low volume has been constructed next to the main block, housing the kitchen. The residence, garden and interior have been designed in great coherence resulting in a series of intimate spaces and places that offer serenity and intimacy in the midst of a breathtaking landscape.
