Architect’s Statement
This private house was built for a Dutch family.

It’s distinctive shape both stands out and suits well in this area of Meppel with rather traditional and conventional architecture.

The shape was conceived by making some subtle alterations to the basic shape of the house: the introduction of a kink in one of the facades which extends directly to a sloping ridge resulted in a dynamic and seemingly complex shape.
