Villa E by Marc Architects
“This part of the house is lifted and contains the central heart of the house with stairs in a huge void. Furthermore there is a cosy living and working area in the front south-west corner. The dining and kitchen are on garden level. On the first floor there are a four (bed-)rooms of different sizes, two bathrooms and a dressing. In the basement we designed a guesthouse, a large storage and wine section and an important and efficient space for installations.
For the interior we mainly used rough materials to express the clients unpolished and imperfect inner being. Kids shout be able to play easily on floor without taking care of messing up. All floors are for this reason seamless. For the stairs and kitchen we used (untreated) steel panels. The roll patterns derived from flattening the steel plates, are symmetrically devided onto the cabinets. We used 200 year old Canadian barnwood sidings to design allmost all bathrooms furniture, sliding doors and wall coverings.”
