Designed by Grosfeld van der Velde architects, renowned architects in Breda, this luxury villa has a special position on the edge of Vlindervallei in Oosterhout - a modern district styled on Dutch architecture reminiscent of the 1930s.
Its contrasting character drifts between discretion and openness, unconventionality and simplicity. In town planning terms, the villa responds kindly to the area with no hint of disapproval, creating a special connection between the district and Veekestraat running alongside. The Grosfeld van der Velde architects believe in the value that architecture brings to our life, and the important role played by quality constructions. The villa has been constructed in line with sustainability criteria.
The company used the guaranteed Abitasistema solution, which enables Geopietra coverings to be fitted to cladding, in partnership with Strikolith. The house is L-shaped to ensure the privacy of its inhabitants and provide a shield against the noise of traffic. The modern, minimalist structure features horizontal façades.
The lengthy stone of the TOCE model in a bespoke combination of shades emphasises the linear pattern of the design. The natural texture of the Geopietra wall is even more detailed and appealing with the use of grey, large-grain GeoBi grouting mortar for joints. The white plaster volumes emphasise the Geopietra wall with a delightful contrasting effect. A large window opens spectacularly onto the garden, while the stone continues into the kitchen and living room, cleverly connecting indoors and outdoors.
Pascal Grosfeld: "The Geopietra stone brings a beautiful, natural and contrasting look to the house"
