Leeuw House by NU architectuuratelier

Quietly anchored in the rural landscape, the Leeuw House is a single family home designed according to the passive house standard.

Looks like a modern barn with metal facades and green palette, this house’s indoor climate and ventilation are completely controlled.

Inspiration from architect:

External expression of this villa seems to clearly define a distinction between night and day-volume. However, inside, a scenography unfolds and the different functions can be found on different levels with interesting inter-relations. Without falling into the syndrome of a Tupperware energy home with superfluous technological novelties, this House demonstrates that spatial and visual relationships can be realized by going into direct dialogue with the surrounding context.
