SODAE

Residential

 

By exploring the limits of existing legislative and cultural standards, the Sodae house searches for a new type of living in the countryside.

Situated in a precious piece of unspoiled polder, the house responds to the many qualities of the landscape. The seclusion and privacy of the remote location are reinforced by an enclosed garden, surrounding the sleeping quarters on the ground floor. The living space, with the kitchen as a central element, is located on the first floor, rising above the garden’s edges. Here the house connects with its surroundings, opening up to the passer-by, and profiting from the phenomenal view – with the Amsterdam skyline as a background. The interior organisation of the house, providing the parents and children with individual entrances and staircases, results in a nuanced collection of differently shared spaces.
