In a quiet meadow lined with hedgerows and surrounded by cows, eighteen ecological recreational residences have been integrated on the farm of the Alferink Family. The accommodations, named Koe in de Kost, are based on a roof of grass recessed in the landscape which gives it a logical binding the surrounding farms, although they have a modern design. With an arched hood the maximum height of the construction is three meters above the grassland. ‘Grondulows’ are built of sustainable and natural materials with wood as a basis. Guests in these houses cannot only see the wood, but also smell and feel it on the inside.

The house radiates warmth with its wooden dining tables and tree-trunk roof. Because it is possible to take a bath beneath a tree-trunk roof it shows an innovative way of the use of wood in the recreational sector. For many this is an unique opportunity to experience ‘real’ wood.
