The new design for this house is related to the former notary house’s shape. This villa offers a large kitchen, living, and also dining on its ground floor. There is also a subtle balance between transparency and privacy in all family spaces in this villa. These spaces also have an awesome relationship with the garden that will be designed by Piet Oudolf.

A luscious bright space can be created by transforming the basement. This space comes with outdoor patios that sit at the end of the playing room and swimming pool. The warm natural sunlight transforms this basement too into a fully exciting and usable place to be.

The study is placed in the double high void in the bedrooms of children on the in-between floor with private bathrooms on the first floor of the building. The top floor is designed for an awesome master bedroom with stunning views over Amsterdam.
