Villa Kerckebosch, a modern residence located in the wooded surroundings of Zeist, the Netherlands.
The team of Engel Architecten, an Amsterdam based studio has designed Villa Kerckebosch, a residence in the wooded surroundings of Zeist, a small town in the center of the Netherlands. The villa was finished at the end of 2014.
Engel Architecten has designed a villa that blends with its surroundings rich of pine trees, oaks, and a newly created open moorland. The building is situated in a newly developed residential area named Kerckebosch, located east of the center of Zeist. This wooded area is reflected in the use of natural brickwork as well as the contrasting colors of the window frames. The house is placed on a deck in order to leave the natural surroundings as intact as possible.
Especially the double-height living room provides beautiful views of the pine trees and the moor. Thereby, the surrounding landscape also dominates the atmosphere inside the villa. This effect is reinforced by the used floor finishing, which is equal inside and outside.
