Photographer: Kevin Scott

Villa SG21 by Fillié Verhoeven Architects

Photographer: François Verhoeven

Villa SG21 is easy and chic as the colour suggests. But to get there wasn’t as easy as the design might suggest. The site, typically Dutch had a very strict building envelope and maximum allowed volume of 1000 cubic meters. The site required a design that would fit the local building code with sloped roofs. The owners however wanted a minimalistic and clean design that would stand out in between the other more conventional structures along the street. (more…)
