123DV projects 360 villa with panoramic views of the landscape

 

 

located in a quiet and picturesque setting in the netherlands, local studio 123DV has designed the 360 villa for a couple and their two beloved dogs. the home is of a modest footprint, occupying only 85 m2 on a single floor of a vast and lush site, almost disappearing into tall grass that engulfs the entry walkway. as the name implies, the circular floor plan is surrounded by a glass partition that wraps the entire envelope of the home providing the 360-degree views to the exterior. this concept serves not only to embed the home into the landscape, it also gives their two alaskan malamutes the ability to see their owners in the home at all times and from anywhere on the property.

the natural grade at the entrance is slightly elevated around half of the house to provide privacy from the public street. on the backside, two retaining walls drop the topography to its natural elevation, opening way for full height glass walls looking out over the yard, shaded by an overhanging roof that covers a concrete patio offering a covered outdoor space for the dogs and owners. the interior is comprised of an open floor plan that connects the living, bedroom, and bathroom with only a simple sliding panel to section off the bedroom. 123DV designed the only internal wall to provide a visual disconnect between the three spaces and functions as an art wall and closet. a central circular skylight illuminates the living area with natural light throughout the day.

  • I dislike round but welcome all the light. I bring a dog to work, so I am around one pretty much 24hrs, but do not understand; “ability to see their owners in the home at all times and from anywhere”. An obsession or some copywriter’s fantasy?
