Surrounded by thick Forest, this House Seems like Something out of a Fairy Tale

By • Jun 26, 2018

This enchanting house seems like it was pulled out of a fairy tale. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and next to a dense forest that is part of the nature reserve of the area. The house is located next to the forest to emphasize the contrast between the open landscape and the forest experience. The rooms of the house benefit from completely different views on each side of the house.

The roof of the porch has movable slats that can serve as a rainproof surface. They can also be opened to allow more light into the house. The project was designed by the architect Tijmen Versluis of the architecture firm Architect eigen huis, in 2016. It is located in Voorschoten, The Netherlands and has an area of ​​290 square meters.

The living room is west facing and has a nice size. A minimalist sliding door, which is divided into three sections, can be opened automatically. By doing this, the living room is transferred to perfection on the outdoor terrace. A large sunscreen is integrated into the details to provide the necessary shade in summer.The dining room, kitchen and living room are linearly aligned, but separated by elegant semi-transparent panels. Sliding the doors creates a large loft-style space and a completely different atmosphere.
