The starting point for this villa interior is perfect detailing, minimalism, loads of daylight, and also a connection with nature. Special attention is given to the energy efficiency and sustainability of the house. It is also a villa that has geothermal energy storage, solar panels, and a heat pump.

For the beds, sliding doors, walls, wardrobes, bespoke cabinets, and fireplace, the architect uses pinewood panels. The material can get a high-end feeling as well thanks to the fine details. The different areas of this villa also can be connected by the pinewood, including connecting the house to its surrounding nature.
