House N was originally built in 1938 but it definitely doesn’t look old now. Located in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, this beautiful residence just got a makeover. It has been renovated in 2012 and now it has a modern and very elegant look. The project was developed by Maxwan in collaboration with structural engineer F. Wiggers – Varsseveld.

Originally, the N House was the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. With time, it got old and the weather definitely had something to do with it. It came a time when this building was in bad need of a renovation. So in 2012 it finally got a makeover. Lots of changes and repairs had to be made. The roof had to be replaced entirely and the basement needed a lot of attention as well. The windows were outdated so they had to be replaced as well. Moreover, some of the spaces were too small so the client wanted something to be done about it.

A building should always express something and it should be a visual representation of the function that space performs. If being explicit is difficult, then it should at least give us a hint for what happens inside. In fact, they should all use as a model this eye-catching building. This is the new molecular science complex built at the Lims La Trobe University.

It was a project by Melbourne-based Lyons Architects and, as you can see, the building stands out for several reasons. It’s definitely a great and important addition to the local architecture.

The design that you see now is the result of a long and detailed study focusing specifically on the relationship which is established between these spaces. The public and the private areas are very different. They each have specific functions and require a certain type of design and décor. Nevertheless, they need to communicate so a relationship has to exist between them. Let’s see how the architects managed to deal with this aspect in the case of this particular project.
