Villa (tense series)

TAILOR-MADE SUIT
For Kabaz the ultimate challenge is to design a house that fits the zoning plan and makes the client happy. The client wanted a modern, sleek house that still had a warm and friendly look. However, the building site for the mansion in Laren had a few tricky obstacles. Combining the wishes with the possibilities of the plot resulted in a house that fits the needs of the client like a tailor-made suit.

FIRM LUXURY
The mansion was designed with natural and bold materials. The matte black door fittings combined with white, wooden doors gives the entrance to the dining room at the front of the mansion a luxury yet rustic look.

ROOM WITH A VIEW
The stunning view at the back of the mansion played an important role in its design. This is where the living room and kitchen are located. While the thatched roof creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the fireplace in the beautiful wall unit in the kitchen creates cosiness indoors.

CONNECTED
The rugged character of the Tense series is found throughout the house. These are sturdy fittings that connect different materials and spaces.

ARCHITECURAL ART
Just as the mix of stone with the stainless steel tap that descends directly from the ceiling turns the toilet into a unique object, so the sleek handle transforms the leather-clad sliding door into a work of art.

ESTRAINT REVEALS THE MASTER
A HOME LIKE A TAILOR-MADE SUIT

WINE & WOOD
Wine and wood are the basis for the wine cellar and attached tasting room in the basement. The walnut wood seen in the kitchen is also used here. Together with the sleek handles of the bar it creates a contemporary and warm look.

NOTHING LIKE A WELL-TAILORED SUIT
This mansion in Laren fits the client needs like a modern, tailor-made suit. The perfect cut, traditional craftsmanship, and contemporary character.
