spot architecture: villa laar, the netherlands

‘villa laar’ by spot architecture
south elevation



‘villa laar’ by dutch spot architecture is a new house placed on the footprint of an old barn. based upon the rotation of the sun,
the design opens in the morning towards the east where the light enters the house through the entree patio.
the evening glow floods the living through the big patio in the west elevation and provides a complete view of the garden.
as the frontside of the house is almost completely closed, there are limited views inside the house, assuring privacy when needed.
