Villa Bakkum is a minimalist house with beautiful exposed brick walls, and with three wings that emerge in the surrounding natural landscape. It is part of a development of Chalet-type homes located in a space where a psychiatric hospital formerly operated and which the municipality decided to redevelop.

The facades on the forest side were designed in bamboo. On the other facades, brick was applied in an extremely strong horizontal formation, which gives the building a strong texture and a highly tactile effect.
