Appreciation towards Orange Architects for providing the following description:

假日之家位于荷兰美丽的特塞尔岛,是一处与众不同的小型别墅。Orange Architects根据不同时间与用途划分空间,摆脱了固定墙壁分隔房间的定式,使设计本身展现出一种“逃离日常”的趣味。

Located on the beautiful Dutch island of Texel, Holiday Home is unlike any other residential villa. Instead of dividing the house into different spaces by walls, Orange Architects decided to divide spaces according to the specific use at any moment in time. Escaping from routine is quite literally built-in.

假日之家代表着新的空间模式。度假时期,人们将花费更多时间相约聚会,减少对私人空间的需求。考虑到这一点,鹿特丹事务所Orange Architects最大化地丰富了内部空间,赋予空间两种功能,优化了房屋性能。白天,房屋是一个开放流动的空间,大窗户和敞开的门模糊了室内外界限,引入了室外环境。到了夜晚,大厅中的木板可旋转90度达到关闭状态,使连续空间围合成独立房间。床也可以转换成全尺寸卧室,同时,隐蔽的淋浴间和洗漱池区域将连接成浴室。通过室内格局的变换,空间利用率将大幅度提高,使闲置的日间活动区域转化成紧凑高效的夜间休息区域。

Holiday Home represents a different approach to space. By day, during a holiday, people tend to spend more time together and there’s less need for private spaces. With this in mind Rotterdam based firm Orange Architects optimized the house by maximizing all spaces inside, allowing most of them to accommodate two functions. By day the house transforms into an open, fluid space. Spaces extend even further, through large windows and opened doors, into the surroundings. By night, wooden panels in the hall can be closed by turning them 90 degrees and the continuous space breaks up into separate spaces. The bed becomes a full-size bedroom, while the hidden shower and sink turn into an en-suite bathroom. By allowing the interior to be transformed, the space inside is optimized, keeping it compact and efficient, avoiding unused rooms during the daytime.

Holiday Home evokes a very spacious feeling within a relatively compact volume. Skylights in the bedroom, library and attic area; window frames as high as five meters to the garden; light colored birch interior paneling and movable lamellas all enhance the rudimentary feeling of well-proportioned spaces, poetic lighting and essential materialization. The project was designed using multiple sustainable solutions: almost invisible solar panels on the roof, natural ventilation, timber structure and concrete floor that acts as a thermal mass, a highly insulated roof, facades and windows. And it’s all- electric; for cooking, warm water and heating, no fossil fuels are needed.

The weather definitely won’t destroy your holiday mood, since the house can be enjoyed in different weather conditions. The lamellas on the terrace can be adjusted if it’s windy, the veranda is to be enjoyed when it’s too sunny, raindrops hitting the roof lights put on a real show and on a clear night the stars do the same.

The contractor, whose company is located on the mainland, prefabricated the walls and roof of the building in his workshop. Because of its irregular shape, the structure was first fully assembled in his workshop. After the structure was fitted and finished, it was dismantled and transported to the island, where it was reassembled on-site within a very short time frame. Then, the very distinct finishing of the interior could start, within the protective shell of the prefabricated structure.

With only a ten-minute walk from the North Sea, Holiday Home provides a cozy but distinctive stay. The solid yet sculptural interior, which is covered by the black wooden shell, creates a strong contrast between the warm inside and the bold outside.
