Dutch Mountain House by Denieuwegeneratie

Published Mar 19, 2012

Gorgeous house in Huizen, The Netherlands designed by Denieuwegeneratie, an architecture studio based in Amsterdam.

“The house is located on a historical agricultural plot amidst hayfields and woods in a nature reserve, a – for Dutch standards – hilly area. Although the plot has been overrun with small trees in time, it still bears the original character of the open field.

To minimize disturbance of the landscape and as a reference to the surrounding hilly terrain, the house is embedded in an artificial hill. At the same time, this answered the client’s demand for keeping his ecological footprint with the house to a minimum. The embedding in the hill simultaneously functions as camouflage and as a blanket, hiding the house from view from the north side and using the earth as thermal insulation.”
