Where the rolling dune landscape flows into the lower-lying polder terrain of the hinterland. The naturally sloping landscape embraces Villa BW, with a building volume characterised by a double-curved roof coupled with an unmistakable expression of the facade. The twisting roof is created as a result of two overlapping shapes. A gable roof is designed on the dune-side, also characteristic of the street scene on the Oorsprongweg. In contrast, a horizontal roofline is designed for the polder-side.

Connection with the landscape
The villa is constructed over three floors, with an additional level within the hood of the roof. Due to the natural course of the terrain and the replenishment of an embankment as a continuation of the dune landscape, the ground floor and basement level at -1 have a direct relationship with the surroundings. Facing southeast the connection with the landscape alongside the sloped garden is enhanced by enclosing two voids with a curtain wall system.

The strong connection between the landscape and the house translates into the expression of the facade and roof cladding with the application of a single natural material, expressed through a custom ceramic tile covering that wraps the entire building. This customised multicoloured glazed tile cladding represents the transitions in the landscape, from dune landscape to polder, and the soil layers, from light to dark.

立面的颜色和外观在从沙丘到圩田景观的过渡中起着重要作用。倾斜的屋顶与外墙的独特肌理，强调出建筑在环境中的存在感。 建筑整体都覆盖着相同且连续的材质 —— 彩色釉面瓷砖。瓷砖的色调形成了一个连贯的整体，将建筑与变化的景观联系起来。瓷砖的色彩与环境色彩的深浅一致，确保建筑能够与不断变化的地形景观相融。沙丘和圩田在不同季节中的景色都反映在由灰色、绿色和蓝色组成的五种瓷砖的主色调中。
The façade’s colour and appearance plays a part in the transition from dune to polder landscape. The monolithic presence of the building volume is accentuated through the sloping roof surfaces and exterior walls. These are covered with tiles of the same continuous material – multicoloured glazed ceramic tiles. The hue of these tiles forms a coherent whole, making a connection and blending the building into the transformative landscape. Colour use is consistent with the shades of the environment, ensuring that the villa is absorbed in the changing terrain. The dune and polder landscape in various seasons is mirrored in the design’s colour spectrum consisting of 5 shades of grey, green and blue.

The glaze of the tiles is vibrant, glossy and has an iridescent effect, creating a pearlescent appearance on the tiles, also influencing the incidence of light on the appearance of the facade and roof. The interplay of different colour shades delivers a varied, multicoloured, natural façade and roof. To prevent repetition and flattening, there is sufficient variation. The mix of shades and the light conditions make the villa look different every time, resulting in a unique striking home.

The exact ratio of various multicoloured tiles was thoroughly studied through sampling. The enamel study was assessed on-site, based on colours, textures and degrees of gloss, using different light conditions. The tiles are oriented vertically, with vertical open joints continuing in one line on the surface of the roof. No repeating pattern is discernible in the façade surfaces with the variable curvature of the roof plane appearing smooth and less segmented.

In the interior, all living spaces are organised around the curtain wall-enclosed voids and an enclosed wood-cladded core. The curtain wall provides transparency and daylight down to the basement levels. The enclosed element-feature of the interior from the basement to the hood of the building accommodates supporting functions, such as rising points and sanitary facilities. The interior design is completed by beautifully framed views of the surrounding countryside, utilising wooden frames passing through the traditional tile work.
