What good is a beautiful single-family home if it doesn't get enough sunlight?

These homeowners thought so too! Designed for a family of five, this house was oriented get the most sunshine. This ensures that it receives plenty of natural light throughout the day.

The family's daily routine has also been taken into account. In the morning, there is ample sunlight, especially in the bedroom and the kitchen. The living area features sunshine throughout the day. In the evening, the sun only falls in selected areas.

Even the basement rooms have been carefully designed so that they utilize daylight.

The outdoor area features a strong relationship to nature, with the garden and facade interacting flawlessly.

View from the east

In the very first image, we come across the home at dusk from a south east angle.

The garden was deliberately kept natural in order to contrast with the modern and elegant architectural structure. The wooden facade marries these two extremes.

The result is a wonderful overall impressions.

Open living room

The entire living area of the home is open and spacious. 

The zoning of different areas has been achieved by using different colours in the different areas. Warm red and orange tones were chosen for the living room. These also add a sense of comfort and charm.

The generous glazing throughout the interior provides a wonderful connection to the exterior space. In addition, a lot of sunlight flows in, creating a warm, light and bright home.

View of the landing

The interior space is very unique yet very subtle. The designers have chosen the colours very carefully to give areas very personal touches.

In this area of the home, we can see how a delicate mint green wall works with the green chair, cabinet and lampshade. The white banisters of the stairs and landing area break up the green tones.

On the ground floor, there is also an office and kitchen as well as a study. The more private rooms such as the bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the upper floor.

Southern view

The south side of the home features the modern and stylish terrace, which benefits from sunlight all day long due to its location. 

A large green area also invites you to play and relax.

Full daylight

From the east side of the home, we can see it in all of its glory in daylight. It's clear that it harmoniously blends into the surrounding nature.
