The Dutch design studio Denieuwegeneratie is a relatively young firm but a very talented one at that. Their latest project, entitled Dutch Mountain House, is buried into the hillside within a nature reserve, which disguises the northern face of the house, allowing it to exist in harmony with its wild surroundings. A large glass façade lets light through and warms the concrete mould, creating a blanket of insulation during the winter. The firm used locally sourced lark timber to frame the arresting façade, one of the many nods toward the environment in this project, seamlessly integrating the home into its natural surrounds. Part of the home has a cave-like feel, while the living areas are open and vast, allowing the owners to cater to both day-to-day moods and the seasons. The interior is equally impressive, balancing alpine sparseness and quirky detailing, with an old jaguar car used as a bookshelf in the kitchen.
