The right bricks
This house, entirely made of bricks, blends with its surroundings. It is a lively type of brick, in a sleek bond with emphatically horizontal joints.
The contrasting interior was kept as austere and clean as possible and features flawlessly plastered white surfaces. The kitchen, cupboards and built-in appliances are completely white as well.
Extendable custom designed dining table
The dining table with a draw-leaf was specially designed. The table is part of a cooking island. It can be a table for quick breakfasts for one person and transformed into a large table overtime for dinners with friends.
Small scale big scale
The location of this residence is highly exceptional: flanked by small-scale detached semi-classical houses with gabled roofs on one side and a large apartment block planned on the other. The client wanted his dwelling to provide maximum privacy. The house represents the transition between these 2 worlds: the facade facing the apartment block is closed, with the exception of a protruding stairwell that offers an intriguing view along the facade - the other side of the building consists of an informal configuration of rectangular volumes, fitted with a large number of windows.

'The level of detailing in the house is very high. The way you walk through the house is very nicely done. I wouldn't mind living here.'
ir. B. Kuipers, landscape architect about Brick Wall House
'I am surprised by the spaciousness of the house - particularly from the staircase with the great bay window. Because the furniture is also designed by the architect it creates a harmonious overall image of high quality.'
