Tim Piƫt and Jos Blom's KHM26 house project is a design lover's dream. The panoramic home is located in the heart of Grou, The Netherlands and overlooks its surrounding waterfront. The dynamic dwelling is reminiscent of a military bunker that has been re-translated as a modern living space.

Its glass and concrete facade features a geometrically formed shape that is a sculptural and vivid entity against its natural backdrop. 'A compact and clear design enforces the home's grand view while a concrete core organizes the floorplan on the inside and the entrance on the outside'.

Overlooking Frisian lake Pikmeer, near Grouw, the 240 ton home is the highlight of its bare landscape. Its heavy concrete material is juxtaposed with its glass partitions, creating a perfect harmony of solid and transparent elements.
