Maas Architecten's 'Modern Countryside Villa' Features a Split Design

Maas Architecten, a Lochem-based architecture studio, has designed its 'Modern Countryside Villa' to both conceptually and physically merge the traditional and the modern. The summer home, which is on the edge of the town of Berlicum in the province of North Brabant, the Netherlands, is primarily made of wood and thatched roofing, but one end seamlessly gives way to a bright and intensely modern greenhouse.

Modern Countryside Villa consists of two volumes conjoined at the center by a sleek glass hallway. Each of these two volumes are covered almost completely by a thatched, gabled roof that extends down to about six feet above the ground, in the style of many traditional Dutch villas. However, the volume covered in dark timber slips into another form, with a glass room pushing out from the back side of the structure.
