Theo Mathijssen of the firm ‘reSET architecture’ designed the renovation and extension of a small decaying farmhouse with a beautiful apple orchard, located in an idyllic location in the Dutch Betuwe region. The simplicity and sobriety of the farmhouse is revealing much about life in the past in this area and how a peasant family and their livestock must have lived here under one roof. This narrative quality does not make the building a monument which must be preserved as it is. It’s the self-evident presence in its surroundings that make the farmhouse distinctive and worth preserving.

This house in Leiden, NL, is integrated into a large 17th century stable whose use has been altered to accommodate six different houses. In this long process of residential occupation, internally, the original clarity and direct quality of the construction had been lost. The renovation essentially sought to clear the space, which was excessively partitioned, so as to regain a unified vision of the house and rediscover its character and spatial qualities.

Ginkgo project combines art, technology and architecture to integrate a housing complex in the nature of the existing park located in front.
CONTEXT AND PROGRAM
The project is located near the natural park of Veluwe in the Netherlands with views over an old church and the central park of the small town.

“A Trip into the Wild”
In the highly cultivated landscape of the Rhine Delta, the Oostvaardersplassen stand out as a pristine wilderness, seemingly untouched by the hands of planners. Its contradictory artificial origin, however, makes it into an emblematic space that allows us to explore the nature of the natural in a country that, like no other, has artificially recreated its natural landscape.

- Location: Oostvaarderplassen, The Netherlands
- Date: 2009

The VANDIJK FASHION STORE lies on the ground floor of a 19th century Dutch style city building in a typically very long and narrow space.
The shop presents itself as an extension of the street rather than a separate luxury unit. A frame-less pane of glass contributes to this blurring of the threshold between inside and out. It sets the interior space as an extension of the street-scape.

- Location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands
- Type of Project: Fashion Store interior
- Building Costs: 100 000 Euros
