This modern villa, designed by BBVH Architecten, is located in the Bieslandarea, a new suburb of Den Haag. The area is characterized by traditional brick architecture but the urban plan prescribed a few private housing developments at specific points in the area. This private house is located at the entrance road in the north east side.

The organization of the house and its position on the plot is aimed at the sun. The entrance, garage, bathrooms and storage rooms are all located at the north east side. The living room, dining room, bedrooms and the terraces are all located at the south side. A spacious garden on the sunny side is created by moving the house as much as possible to the north side of the plot. The living room has a glass façade with large sliding doors.
