Summer house Midlaren in Drenthe, Netherlands by Kwint architects

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Article source: Kwint architects

We were asked to design a simple summer home. The result is a straight forward house, of rich and spatial design in map and cross section. Internally, it seems entirely to consist of two separate houses, similar to a bronze sculpture of Giacometti entitled: Figure in a Box between Two Boxes which are Houses.

Yet despite this over use, this is exactly what comes to mind when visiting Tectoniques’ project in Givors, a town close to the city of Lyon.
