This Minimalist House with Beautiful Brick Walls will Leave you Breathless

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.
It is located in Bakkum, a small town near the coast, and part of the municipality of Castricum, in North Holland. It sits on the edge of a large natural reserve and among leafy trees.
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.
The design, carried out by architects Gianni Cito, Diederick de Boer, and Patrick de Weerd, part of the team at the architectural firm Moke Architecten, covers an area of 400 square meters and was carried out in the year 2107.
The layout of the villa has three wings with the entrance and the staircase in the central triangular space. Each wing has its own use; a private area, an area with office space, and an area with the kitchen, the dining room, and the garage.
