Engel Architekten has recently finished work on a beautiful contemporary home in Zeist, a small town in the centre of the Netherlands. Interestingly, the main objective of the design was for the house to blend into its natural surroundings. Even more interesting, it does just that in spite of the fact that it is the epitome of modernity.

Engel Architekten was able to achieve this perfect balance through the use of neutral colors and floor-to-ceiling windows that grant people a peak into the minimalist white interior. With subtle accents of wood throughout, Engel Architekten ensures that there is a touch of nature in the design as well. Mostly, however, this refreshing element is reflected by the tree-filled area around it.
