2157 – House Berkel-Enschot in Netherlands by Bedaux de Brouwer Architecten

House Berkel-Enschot is situated within a rural landscape of profound beauty. Next to a green triangular shaped juncture there’s a collection of old barns and farmhouses. The principal idea was to design a residence that would fit well within this setting and would offer lots of interesting views outward, from an interior immersed in light.

The house has been designed as a modern interpretation of the archetypal longhouse. It has a dominant roof with a low gutter, which is a feature to be found on many of the nearby farms. By using primarily regional materials the house nestles in-between the vernacular buildings and fuses with its natural surroundings.

The added structure connects to an existing barn. The connecting element has been rendered in glass and wooden components to form a kind of transition between the old and new vocabulary.

The design can be read as a plea for continuity in architecture; avoiding hard confrontations with the vernacular heritage. By continuing the existing language and colour palette, a refined and restrained element has been added to this unique place.
