A wooden country house designed by Korteknie – Stuhlmacher architects blends very well in the surrounding landscape of dunes and polders in the Dutch Goeree-Overflakkee.
With a landscape and house that beautiful just minimal adjustments are needed in the outdoor space to fully enjoy this place and view.
The house consists of two slightly moved volumes. The space between those two volumes forms an intimate place that just needs to be embraced to become a pleasant terrace. We framed it with a wide floating bench as a continuation of the building. With this simple and clean design a nice and cultivated place is created, but at the same time the space around the house stays just wat it needs to be; the Dutch landscape in all his simplicity and glory.
The outdoor terrace is made out of the same material as the façade, an oak plateau floats above the historical sand wall. From here you’ll have view over the wet fields behind the wall and the dunes at te back. The old Populus tree peaks through the wooden terrace and gives a contrast to the clean lines of the architecture and outdoor space. The garden itself is a continuation of the local landscape, with an orchard, high grasses and local flowers bending in the wind and around the lawn.
