Villa 1 – Powerhouse Company

Villa 1 is a woodland house in the veluwe Zoom area naer Arnhem in the Netherlands. The house was designed by architects Powerhouse Company and has won an award as the ‘best private interior’ at the Dutch Design Awards last week. It has also been nominated for the AM NAi prize 2008.

Following info is from Powerhouse Company:

The villa was completed at the beginning of this year. Powerhouse Company also designed the garden, the interior and a couple of furniture pieces. Set in the woodlands of Holland, the program of Villa 1 is oriented optimal towards the views on the terrain and the sun. Half of the program is pushed below ground to meet local zoning regulations. This creates a clear dichotomy in the spatial experience of the house – a glass box ground floor where all mass is concentrated in furniture elements and a ‘medieval’ basement, where the spaces are carved out of the mass.

  1. Wow, that’s a real powerhouse.
    On itself it’s a beautiful architectural design. But for me, from the Feng Shui point of vieuw, the house is not in harmony with the environment.
    It looks more as a hard and metal knife-like form that attacks the wood in the environment.
