Located in Arnhem, Netherlands, this modern beauty was designed and built by BOETZKES/HELDER. The client expressed his wish to have a modern home with loft-like interior. Everything had to be unique. The result was this minimalist design, with graphic lines and almost no details.
The façade of the house is made of aluminum and made of expanded metal sheets with a special coating that changes color depending on the light. This compensates the extreme minimalistic design. The window frames are also aluminum and they contribute to the spacious and dynamic interior.
The house has an oblique shape in the front and side and runs parallel with the street. At the back of the house there’s a big glass wall with sliding doors that open up to the garden and the terrace, that’s actually an extension of the ground floor. The connection between interior and exterior areas is made gradually. The glass façade can also be covered with a moveable sunscreen made of perforated aluminum.
The interior is divided in three areas on the ground floor. There’s a garage, an entrance and a large living area that includes the living room, dining room and kitchen. An open steel staircase leads to the first floor, where the private areas are situated. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The rooms that are situated on the front of the house have views over the green hills of Doorwerth.
