The Netherlands is relatively flat. A site with a height difference of 6 meters thus provides unique possibilities. HILBERINKBOSCH architects was asked to fully exploit the qualities of the plot, while designing a luxurious villa. The plot is surrounded by three areas: dense vegetation towards the street, a large open space on the front side of the terrain and an open pine forest on the backside of the plot, which is characteristic for the area. An offshoot from the ‘Utrechtse Heuvelrug’ provides a significant height difference. The villa is situated on the north-east side of the lot, in and on the sand dune. The main areas of the residence are situated on the first floor which provides the best setting towards the forest. Because of its setting on top of the sand dune, one can walk straight out into the forest. In the dune on ground level, the guestrooms, fitness, sauna and pool are situated. Floating concrete floors, occasionally connected by robust brick walls emphasize the slope and the character of the terrain. Materials which are released on the building site are re-used whenever possible. Doing this, the building is deeply connected with its location, naturally and uniquely.
