Tuinhuis | Bilthoven


Wooden summer house with roofed terrace | the Netherlands

At the far of the back of Julianalaan villa, which we renovated and enlarged for the same client in the past, we designed a garden house set among some mature pines. The wooden house and veranda float above the sloping terrain. As a result, there is a space under it at the back for storing garden tools and wood. The house is a truss and timber frame construction. The metal roof has no gutters; rainwater drains into the ground to the water collection area at the back of the garden. The house has an open floor plan with a kitchen, an enclosed bathroom and a window overlooking the woods to the rear.
