Villa 100 is located in the outskirts of Emst along a public road hidden behind the adjoining buildings. The plot is narrow and long, therefore the house was designed as a long volume perched to one of the long sides.
Two levels organise the programme within the villa: The top floor being open and outward facing with the kitchen and living room. The ground floor is sunken and therefore more introvert, housing the bedroom and a small house around an underground patio. The entrance of the house is sheltered in between the house and the garden wall. Behind the front door the corridor runs along the garden wall to the rear of the house. The roof rotates upward opening the space up to the landscape. Large glass window panes frame the spectacular outward views.
In the outskirts of Emst, on the east side of the Veluwe, there is a
small plot. Because of the small width on the side of the public road, the lot is hidden behind the adjoining buildings, but on the other side it stretches far between the agricultural lands behind.
The villa consists of two layers. The top layer is open and outwards, this is where the living room and the kitchen are located. The second layer is below the surface and is more introvert. Around the patio lie the bedroom and office.
On the north side of the lot is a two-and-a-half-meter high gardenwall. The garden wall of Norwegian brickwork starts in front of the house and ends far behind the house in the garden.
The entrance of the house is sheltered in the armpit between the
house and the wall. Behind the front door the corridor runs along
the garden wall to the rear of the house, where the living room
is located. Large glass fronts give a wide view of the underlying
