Mansion between water and city

Best Of Both Worlds

This contemporary mansion is situated between the Markermeer and the old city centre of Hoorn. The challenge was to design the interior in a way that both orientation points would come into their own. The five-storeybuilding offered ample space for this. The living spaces are on the frontside and rear side, while the more functional rooms are positioned in the heart of the house. 
Due to the use of various materials, each floor has its own tension. The cement-like floor in the basement feels robust, the oak floor on the first level more intimate. These include the materials that ensure that the house has character, which is not self-evident in a newly built house. This mansion has a natural appearance, as if it has never been different.
