dutch firm hofman dujurdin engels designed a 350m2 villa located in the dune forest, in bloemendaal, the netherlands. the most important feature of the villa is the orientation to its surrounding nature. volumes are rotated towards each other creating views into the forrest. the relation with the outdoor space is not only visual but also physical. each volume is connected to one another through an outdoor terrace.
