EVA’s ‘villa ijsselzig’ is situated overlooking the river hollandse ijssel in the netherlands. the riverside has been kept transparent to maximize the view, the dyke side has a more modest, closed character to guarantee privacy. the house refers to the neighboring houses in the original ribbon development in terms of form but has a contemporary character with minimal details and rich colors. the copper roof and bricks have been chosen in the same shade of red brown color to make the whole appear as one volume.

the interior of dutch based EVA architecten‘s latest residential project has been designed in cooperation with NEST architects. a wooden core organizes the internal spaces and comprises the staircases, storerooms and other facilities. consequently, the rest of the plan can freely be utilized. on the upper floor all bedrooms overlook the ijssel, the support areas are arranged on the dyke side. in order to receive daylight on this side in the spaces on the upper floor roof lights are introduced. the rest of the roof can therefore remain clear and empty.

due to the orientation and placement of the facade openings, the villa itself participates in the energy management: the open side is the north side where light enters but sun doesn’t. the more closed side is the south side and the heat build-up is limited here. supplemented with extra insulated walls, a heat pump and solar panels, this makes for a very durable home.
