The holiday home you’re looking at was built by Dutch practice De Zwarte Hond Architects on the island of Schiermonnikoog (say that with a mouthful of mash potato).
The holistically sustainable property frames it’s dune and forest surroundings and maximise space by extending it’s floorspace underground.
The height and shape of the roof adjusts as you trace the perimeter, complimenting the surroundings.
The L-shaped floor plan divides the living spaces into communal at ground level and the sunken level more private.
Clad in larch timber, the facade of this nifty piece of south coast real estate is intended to age over time.
This is a piece of real estate we wish existed in the Illawarra!
