Started in 2017 and completed in 2019, Villa Tonden is designed by HofmanDujardin to escape from the rush of the city. With 150 m2 in size, this villa becomes an ideal holiday retreat in Tonden, Netherlands. This villa is composed of three archetypical house-shaped volumes with stunning views of nature that can be seen from all rooms.
The characteristic appearance of this villa is shaped by the architect carefully o perfectly fit into the open spot in the pine woods on the site. It is a wood-clad home equipped with all amenities required to enjoy some awesome times with friends and family. This villa offers comfortable rooms with amazing views of the surrounding nature.
This villa has three archetypical house-shaped volumes and they also soften its modern presence in the site landscape to create distinct places. The villa facades can embrace the different terraces which overlook the woods and encircling fields. The individual volumes can result in unique interior spaces with specific qualities while the sliding doors are used to strengthen the internal connections between them.
With a reading window, an entrance hall is connected openly to the main living space of the villa. The living room follows the sun with openings that oriented in three directions. There are also two large glass sliding doors that open up to the west and east terrace, blurring the lines between interior and exterior. The timber roof structure is visible so its height is emphasized. The living room creates the heart area of the villa and invites all to have dinners around the fireplace.
A big window and a private bathroom can be found in the master bedroom, offering awesome views towards the surrounding woods. There are four build-in bunk bed nooks in the bedroom of the children, providing a grounded place to feel safe in the natural surroundings. These rooms are located in front of a big window and overlook the woods, allowing the kids to enjoy the view as well. Two additional guest bedrooms are located in the attic and both of them have a skylight to watch treetops and beautiful stars.
