This house is all about its spectacular surroundings. The unobstructed 360° views on meadows and farmland dictated our design approach. Opening up the house so you can enjoy the views every season, every moment of the day. Adding elements to characteristic houses is a challenge. It requires research into existing qualities and humility. The transformations on this coastal home are modest and 'basic'. Instead of making a statement we went for subtle. Before the conversion, the interior wasn't linked with its green surroundings. We opted for frameless windows and a concrete bench that connects the inside of the house with the rural context.
