Contemporary lines combined with artistic playfulness. Although this family home is situated in Haelen, Netherlands, it possesses the simplicity, minimalistic aesthetics and elegant serenity of the architectural expression typical for the Scandinavian architecture and design. The architects from Lab32 had cleverly integrated the naturally undulated landscape and left the clear-lined cubical volume of the house to float elegantly on its beautiful surrounding. The material palate is correspondingly simple and natural – wooden cladding, white plastering and aluminum framing – all together creating sleek and pure design for the premises combined with the warmth of the materials and textures.
Everything in this house project is clear-lined and simple as possible, even the color palette is restrained and ascetic – matt black and shining white entwine and create a perfect ambiance for the exhibit of the many artefacts, sculptures and contemporary installations of the owners. The delicate and artistic presence of the bespoke lamps, ceramics and renowned contemporary paintings is a guarantee for a classy and stylish home appearance. The indoor design drawn by interior decorator Rob Zeelen is modernistic and artistic and the same time, functional and imaginative, simple and yet catching with its intriguing details.
