The home owners designed the layout themselves, creating a loft-like house. Their goal was to build as few ‘rooms’ and doors as possible and by choosing to make room for a void, all spaces are connected to each other. The wooden construction of the roof is visible from the ground floor. Characteristic are the sleeping lofts, which allowed them to retain the open character of the house without compromising too much on floor space. Their aim was not to build an insanely large house in terms of food print, but to have enough space for the dynamics that suit their family. In terms of furnishing, they use natural materials, design classics, heirlooms, locally designed and produced design and marketplace finds as much as possible. The house is an ecologically and sustainably built timber frame house with a sedum roof, solar panels, solar boilers, heat pump, clay wall with wall heating, underfloor heating, ecological insulation such as jute and metisse.
