We designed two villa’s for a single family, which are aligned to the client’s wishes to fully develop his future dream home based on Vastu Shastra. An ancient, Indian sacred science within the architecture, which deals with energy flows, like Feng Shui. Vastu Shastra also deals with curves, wind directions, use of materials and the relations between the different program components.
The design holds a great diversity of program components, which offer a home for the client’s busy lifestyle and that of his family. A place where living, sleeping and relaxing, renegades in a logical way.
In order to get the desired program on the plot in the town of Zoetermeer, two spacious villas have been created. Both are in tune with their architecture and have a good visual connection. Both villas also have their own identity and program.
Due to the location we especially have focussed ourselves on creating privacy between the users and houses next to it. Also we wanted to create an open connection to the garden.
In its energy management and materialization, we looked at sustainable solutions by making it simple but efficient for comfortable living now and in the future.
On the outside we choose for hand-formed bricks, stucco and continuous balconies. By doing this we increased the horizontality and the connection between the front and back.
