Taking Architecture Originality to Another Level: Villa Nefkens

Taking Architecture Originality to Another Level: Villa Nefkens

Here is a residence that spells “originality”. Designed by Mecanoo Architects and located in Wageningen, The Netherlands, Villa Nefkens is a remarkable project. Overlooking the Rhine, this residence is a masterpiece of architecture embedded in a diverse and astonishing environment. If you are curious about the origins of the idea behind this house, here is some info from the architects: “The design for the Nefkins villa takes its inspiration from the beautiful views from the living room and main bedrooms and also from the spacious kitchen/lounge area toward the big garden. Large terraces elevate the house to just above grade, making the house appear as if it is floating. The villa’s transition from interior to exterior is gradual and a canopy surrounding the whole house provides beautifully framed views while allowing the outdoor spaces to be enjoyed in the summer and fall. The round forms of the villa express the wish of the family to stay close to nature while simultaneously realizing an individual design.” Do you find this project’s architecture as impressive as we do?

    Great architecture! Those rounded elements seem to lead the way into the future. But why not use the upper floor piece as a balcony?
