Could This Futuristic Country Hut Be the Ideal Lair?
This lovely little shed-style home is located on a rural site in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and is substantially blessed with an abundance of surrounding nature. The house itself was created primarily for the purpose of rest and relaxation, and you’ll see that in the furnishings to match. Taking careful note to connect the indoors with the outdoors, the designers of this cottage planned thoughtfully the installation of huge glass facades and shutters.

In the rural area north of Utrecht a compact recreation house has been realized. The house is constructed in wood and opens its façade with window shutters towards the green garden. The house has replaced an existing garden house, which foundation is reused and its existing contours were the starting point of the new house. The archetypal cottage is simple: a gable roof of stone slate, a chimney and a wood cladding of Western Red Cedar. The cottage blends into the landscape seamlessly by the natural use of the materials. The architectural drafting, interior design and its realization were in one hand. This has resulted in an unprecedented high level of craftsmanship. The refinement of this cottage is in the asymmetrical head design, detailing and interior. The house is completely closed on one side by putting the slates vertical on the façade. The other side opens up to the green and is equipped with movable window shutters. That way the sunlight and view can be directed. The front section is used as a kitchen / living / dining room and in the rear area the sleeping room is placed. The space can be separated by sliding panels. Above the sleeping area is a small entresol is made.
