In this typical open Dutch landscape, the clients envisioned a home with an integrated workshop area, which blended with the rural environment as well as took advantage of the existing long views. Therefore we saw a seamless transition between indoor and nature as essential. Due to the clients limited budget we developed a set of low-tech design features to make this building sustainable. The neighbouring farm also enables our building to reach sustainably sourced heating and electricity.
