Staggering Three Sections of the Dune Villa in Utrecht, the Netherlands
We can never deny the fact that we dreamed of having a spacious and green location for our ideal houses. With that we would like to adopt the design of our house to the existing resources in the location. Today we will be sharing to you a house design that maximizes the availability of the location’s rich resources. This house is called the Dune Villa. It’s a contemporary house built in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Well, the house’ plot is divided into three areas namely dense vegetation towards the street, a large open space at the front and an open pine forest at the back of the plot. The clients actually are truly aware of the unique location and they may take the full advantage of it. However, according to the designer there is an offshoot from ‘Utrechtse Heuvelrug’ dune that lays on the north side of the plot that resulted in a six meter height difference. Let us check more of the amazing areas of the location of this Dune Villa through the images below.

Indeed we can say that the joint search from the architect with the client for the right mix of familiarity, naturalness and amazement led to this unique home was realized.
