Excerpt: Bird View Villa is a residence designed by the architectural firm 123DV Modern Villas. Panoramic views of the overwhelming Dutch nature from the living rooms and the bedrooms. Working on the sailboats in the boathouse, relaxing after a hard day’s work, riding on the ride-on mower directly out of the storage room onto the lawn. These were essential experiences to design.

Project Description

Boats, lawnmowers, and guests

Panoramic views of the overwhelming Dutch nature from the living rooms and the bedrooms. Working on the sailboats in the boathouse, relaxing after a hard day’s work, riding on the ride-on mower directly out of the storage room onto the lawn. These were essential experiences to design.

Three buildings

We designed three buildings: a villa, a boathouse, and a storage building. Together the buildings provide the necessary privacy for the street and the neighbors. How can we blend these buildings with the overwhelming natural landscape with lakes and farm buildings? The villa design has a split personality. To blend in with the neighboring farm buildings, the streetside of this modern villa has style elements of farms: brickwork and solid-looking walls.

This very present roof lining starts relatively low, at the lowest floor. To blend in with nature, the garden-side of the villa and the storage building are inspired by pavilion architecture: more lightly built. The boathouse design reflects the design of typical storage buildings on farms. 

Birds

Besides the beautiful nature and the lakes, this area is well known for the presence of extraordinary birds. Bird spotters from around the world visit the location to see the birds. The family can spot these beautiful birds from their home.
