Overview

Villa (square series) Noord-Brabant, The Netherlands

QUADRATIC MINIMALISM
Starting at the entrance, the unique features of this house in North Brabant are immediately discernible. The massive front door with the massive front door knob from the Square series is just the prelude to the minimalist character that defines this project. 

HIDE IT
For this project, Bob Manders opted to work with as few different materials as possible. This minimalist approach is strengthened as only moving parts can be seen. Many of the details have been carefully hidden away, like the door and window frames that have been hidden in the walls.

MAXIMIZNG MINIMALISM
The Square series by FORMANI® was selected for this design to maintain the minimalist look and feel and enhances the minimalist character of the home.
 
EXPOSE
While the home is closed off from public spaces such as roads and other buildings, it is optimally connected to the landscape by the integration of large sliding patio doors. Thanks to the minimalist design, the landscape takes centre stage. 

MIAMI BEACH STYLE
While diagonal sight lines are used indoors, the exterior is reminiscent of Miami Modern style. The large walls serve as projector screens that reflect the shadows of the trees just as the view of the home is directed at the natural landscape.
