Luxury and design in the dunes of Holland

A luxury villa (with 5 en-suite bedrooms) designed by BNLA Architects of Amsterdam stands among the wooded dunes just behind the coast of Zeeland.

The well-positioned plot is bordered on three sides by trees in a beautiful forest, and an important design requirement was to incorporate the house with its surroundings to allow the family to enjoy the garden to the full.

Another requirement for the new villa was a 'modern house with character'. The clients were delighted with another project designed by BNLA involving a house in the dunes of Bergen aan Zee, especially the murogeopietra solutions. In the Zeeland villa a wall measuring 24 metres in length was designed and covered with Geopietra internally and externally. The BLUMONE model with its long linear shape and appealing arrangement was chosen to highlight the length of the wall. The stone features are also easily visible in the evening thanks to lighting on the paving.

The stone wall crosses the internal space, solidly connecting the living area with the porch and garden at the back with character and style. The façade bases were also constructed with murogeopietra in white plaster, providing protection from splashes of water and avoiding additional maintenance for the external white plaster. The natural materials and range of colours used for the house, the white plaster, anthracite frames, earth-grey stone and straw roof create a sense of balance. The mark of the BNLA architects is also visible in the mix between rustic and contemporary and the innovative light, understated architecture. The result is a unique and exclusive customised residence.

In the article the model Blumone / profile Ledge Stone has been presented.
