This is the house designed for Utrecht Landscape Foundation by Sluijmer & Van Leeuwen. These houses located in an estate consist of five houses in 185 hectare agricultural land and forest area. The Beukenburg house build in the middle of protected nature. A concept with thin, lightweight construction realized in inconspicuous and natural building materials has led to a very strong architecture. Remarkable is the very consistent and clear detail. The pleasure of inventing and professionalism make radiates from there. Visit Sluijmer & Van Leeuwen Architects website to get more information or read the short description after the images.
