Villa Panorama, where you can “enjoy the country life in a home where your dream landscape reveals itself before your own eyes”.
Inspired by the broad horizontal lines of the Dutch landscape Björn van Rheenen of Sponge Architects designed Villa Panorama. These horizontal lines are translated into an open design which blends into its environment perfectly.
The large glass façade and the long small pond that optically comes straight from the garden into the spacious living area makes sure that there is an optimal contact with the garden. The green meadows will be continued onto the flat roof construction. By doing so the architect ensures a perfect and smooth merge between his interior and design.
The garden design is also inspired by the landscape. There is an optimal sensation of the seasonal changes. The cottage villa is built from local building materials such as reed for the thatched roof, wood and local bricks which makes this villa a part of its surroundings.
Villa Panorama is suitable for various types of housing: a family home, seniors housing or even a home-office is possible.
Sustainability was a very important issue when designing Villa Panorama. By using environmentally-conscious designing techniques Villa Panorama is contributing to the increasing demand for sustainable architecture.
