Villa Veth in Hattem, The Netherlands by 123DV (designed using AutoCAD and Cinema 4D)

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: 123DV

Floating from time to time

Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands.

The driveway on the entrance side leads to a carport situated below the house. This places the cars out of sight and gives the impression of the house partially hovering. It is a simple architectural approach with a great visual effect. The house looks sleek and abstract on the outside, but has a warm and cozy interior.

After a couple of challenges that nottoscale faced due to the remoteness of the site and the Wild West mentality of the local contractors, the building was finally completed in December of 2010.
