Article source: Van den Ven Architekten

A modern and beautiful dream villa with Barroco Stone Panels. For a renovation project Van den Ven Architekten chose for the partial covering of the façade of a villa with the Barroco Modern Coppergrey to give the villa a more modern look. The project is situated in a nature rich environment in a Dutch village. The architect wanted to integrate the villa with its surroundings but at the same time realize a villa that is modern and one with the nature. The choice is therefore logical to use natural materials. The use of the Barroco Stone Panels enables these features and now the villa integrates perfectly with its surroundings. The choice of using the Barroco Modern Copper grey is because of its color pallets blend perfectly with the villa in its environment and make the villa look astonishing and modern.
