The villa is positioned on a rectangular plot of 35 x 50m, that is enclosed at 3 sides with similar plots and freestanding houses. On the back of the plot there’s an old embankment with several tall trees. From the living program; the kitchen, dining area and living are all orientated on this green scenery. Here the villa has a glass façade over 20 meters long.
The villa BH by WHIM Architecture is designed as environmental friendly with extra insulated façades, roofs and floors. The roof is covered with sedum, that regulates the distribution of the rainwater gently. On the flat roof are 20 solar panels for electricity. A heat pump warms the floors in the winter and cools them in the summer with natural temperature differences retrieved deep in the ground. As an extra heating there are 2 fireplaces for wood, one in the living and one in the TV-room. via
