built for a former director of Philips in the green surroundings of Schuttersbosch.
Hugo de Ruiter the villa granted the perfect opportunity to combine residence and workspace, using the indoor garage as a studio space.
to feel that I am working in the garage!, was the assignment.
was found in adding a volume to the existing garage.
a south-facing glass strip makes sure that the centre of the studio receives plenty of daylight.
By utilizing perforated corrugated sheets as a monomaterial for the walls and the roof, a subtle extension of the roof tiles of the existing house has been established. A sandwich collar made of galvanized steel that also serves as the outer border of the terrace detaches the existing structure from the new one.
