This villa which was constructed in 1930 is precisely located on a swallow spot near the river dommel, it is in downtown Eindhoven, designed by Louis Kooken, he was the founder of the 110 year existing architecture office De Bever Architecten. By the current architects of the office, Stefan de Bever and Heleen van Heel, this villa interior of one of the dwellings in the villa has now been refurbished.
This old villa is contains three dwellings and it is built in brick. This villa architecture design is standing between the old weeping willows, beeches and lustrous bank vegetation; they take on a stately character. Through the classical elements such as the terraces, bay windows and overhang roof, this building is connected to the landscape. The mass of the villa and the different dwellings within are articulated by these elements. The original interior design of the dwellings can be called classically Thirties.
Home Renovation Design Progress
The architect’s jobs are to refurbish the classically arranged ground floor of the deep middle dwelling into a contemporary, loft-like space for a family with two children. New qualities can be introduced while keeping the already present elements such as window bays and the coves; it is achieved by removing the wall which is exists between the living room and the kitchen. The living space has been lengthened with two meters and a skylight has been added on the back side.
By the architect teams, the construction of the living space has been revealed and a new supporting column has been added, the different ceiling heighten of the original rooms have been accentuated in the new design home. On the back side, the aluminum folding door can be wholly en connects the living area to the terrace and the garden. The room of this living space has a grey floor screed and a smooth white stucco walls. The different zones appear that are divided by the specific furniture designs.
The architects have also designed three couches, besides designing the fixed cabinets and the kitchen. A white leather couch is a part of the kitchen design. This leather is turning the kitchen into a place to accompany the chef and drink a cup of coffee whiles the owner enjoying the garden. In the living space, the yellow couch cabinet marks a specific spot here, it is can be used as a play area for the children.
The activities of dwelling have been central in the design process: being together, sitting, playing, cooking, and going through the day. The architect result is a contemporary, open loft-like space which is sits relaxed in a monumental villa.
