The most modern country house you'll ever see

The most modern country house you'll ever see

In the middle of nature and among the canals of the Vinkeveense region, in Holland, we have discovered this house that shines like ebony itself. Black outside and bright white inside, this holiday cottage in the Dutch countryside is a delight of interior design and architecture, the work of i29 interior architects & Chris Collaris.

With only 55 m², the house seems much larger than it really is, and all around an impressive natural landscape, the Vinkeveense canals. The house is designed for a family of four, and has a living room, kitchen with dining room, garden, three bedrooms, a bathroom and two toilets.

All the interior design of the house is projected outside, and the intelligent distribution makes use of every cm².

It is located near the lake, and all the construction -in modules- is designed to take advantage of the views of the canals, and the orientation of the sun. By dividing the house into four modules, panoramic views and sunlight envelop the entire house. Outside, the volumes of the house create a unique sculptural image about the landscape. Each facade is different but they all have the same minimalist design in black wood with large windows to fuse the interior with the exterior.

Inside, custom furniture and fitted wardrobes with simple materials, such as natural oak panels, or black stained, combine with the pine wood facade and the polished cement floor. With a clear criterion that not always "the bigger, the better", this project with simple but efficient ideas, is "intelligent, comfortable but without compromises of quality in both interior and architectural design; small is beautiful".
