Nuenen House: A White-Painted Brick Facade with A Special Interior and Different Character of Spaces

Nuenen House 3

Designed in 2015, Nuenen House offers a white-painted brick facade with an opening that shows the house special interior. This house is beautified by Bedaux de Brouwer Architecten for a two-person household located in Nuenen, the Netherlands, that fits well with the surroundings of houses from the 1970s. The facade can form a special interior inside while the mix of spaces of a different character is the main open plan for this project.

Facade

Nuenen House 1

On the outside, this house looks like a simple volume. The large facade of the house has an opening that can show the special interior to everyone who sees it. It is a white-painted brick facade with a connection to the surrounding houses. The pronounced ‘folding joint’ and the crosswork masonry soften the house abstract exterior.

Designed for a two-person household, this house offers more private rooms. The design effect is enhanced by sizing and the user of material and color. The raised living room is located in the front area of the house, offering an awesome view of the green. The sunken garden room and dining kitchen provide easy access to the garden designed by Adriaan Geuze van West 8.
