DORMERS HOUSE in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Studio 2 stripeS

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Article source: Studio 2 stripeS

This private house on the outskirts of a small village near Hilversum was extended by two large dormers from which one has a staggering length of 9 meters.

This house built in the early 70s has very nice details on the gutter and the eaves. While designing the extension on the first floor we found it really important to continue in this existing style. The design we came up refers to the former details and color pallet.
