Total concept villa in the furthest part of Rieteilanden
In the southernmost part of IJburg, Rieteilanden Oost, with plots for detached houses, is a villa designed as a total concept by the architectural office Studioninedots.
The villa is situated on the furthest tip of Rieteiland Oost, with a wide view over the water and of Diemerpark opposite. The clients had built their previous home in IJburg. For their new home in Rieteiland Oost they commissioned Studioninedots. The villa has an elongated, rhomboid floor plan, as a result of which the perspective changes constantly from different viewpoints. From some angles the building looks wide, but when viewed from the furthest tip of the plot it has an acute angle. There are large windows on the waterside, so that water and nature are always visible.
Inside, the concrete construction rests on a single central pillar, as a result of which the dwelling has a large clear span. The hall, living room, the kitchen and the dining area are thus one continuous space. The glazed front on the water side can be completely opened. The central construction also supports the staircase; downstairs, almost invisible from outside, the stepped form of the dike embankment determines the volume. The downstairs space is modelled along this hollow form. The upper storey has perforated shutters, which create a beautiful effect inside during the day and outside at night. Upstairs are the children’s rooms and the master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom.
The technical gadgets and the detailing are sleek and subtle. From the suspended stair treads to the mechanism for operating the kitchen fully automatically, the total concept is carried through perfectly, from the walls right down to the door handles. (ATA)
