Glass Extension Breathes Life into 1920s Brick House in the Hague
Finding a beautiful balance between the old and the new, the Fig Tree House in La Haya, The Netherlands, combines greenery with a variety of textures and an open, modern ambiance. Revamped and extended by Bloot Architecture, the original brick house was built in 1927 and it still retains much of its classical charm. Its new glass extension finds a way to extend the loving area by using a series of glass walls and sliding floor-to-ceiling glass doors along with concrete walls. The new dining area and kitchen feel more semi-enclosed than like a part of the traditional interior as the existing Fig tree outside becomes a part of the narrative indoors.
