Villa Julianalaan | Bilthoven

Villa julianalaan

Extension of a Residential House  |  Bilthoven |  the Netherlands

Located on Julianalaan in a wooded area of the Gooi region, the existing house had been extended a number of times in recent years. The result was a gloomy and cluttered interior with low-ceilings and little contact with the extensive gardens. Moreover, the extensions were of poor quality.

The starting point for the design was to ‘open’ up the house to the gardens and the sun. The existing extensions have been replaced by new additions featuring timber-frame construction and pitched roofs, which rise from the existing building line towards the south. Glazed screens and a timber terrace enhance the relation with the gardens.
