Maasland house

Along the ‘Trekkade’ canal in Maasland the Van Leeuwen home was built on the site of a former farm.

The architects house was a dream come true after 28 years: designing your own home. All rooms are situated around a central atrium, and on different split levels. This provids the possibility of frequent mutual interaction.

The architecture is dominated by ‘floating’ roof thas is visible from a distance of kilometers along the canal. From a distance the villa manifests itself as a ship floating ashore. Transversal facade details and the veranda provide visual movement.

The light danish bricks make the facade look animated.
