Villa 1 by Powerhouse Company
Set in the woodlands of Holland, the program of Villa 1 is oriented optimal towards the views on the terrain and the sun. Half of the program is pushed below ground to meet local zoning regulations. This modern design is sleek, polish, and commands attention among its wooded surroundings in Arnhem, the Netherlands. This creates a clear dichotomy in the spatial experience of the house – a glass box ground floor where all mass is concentrated in furniture elements and a ‘medieval’ basement, where the spaces are carved out of the mass.
