A Reflection of Modern Thinking in Glass-and-Mirror Villa 1 House Design

And the Dutch Design Award for “Best Private Interior Design” goes to Villa 1, the architectural dichotomy designed by Powerhouse Company and completed in 2007. This modern design is sleek, polish, and commands attention among its wooded surroundings in Arnhem, the Netherlands. The architects did a 50/50 number of this futuristic design, with 240m2 of the home’s volume above ground, and the other 240m2 nestled below grade. Like its physical placement, the upper portion of the house is light, boasting a glass-box enclosure that’s bathed in bright, natural light. The lower level of the home takes on what the architects call a “medieval” persona where the living areas are cave-like – “carved out of a mass.” Interiors are finishes with barely-there glass, mirrors and ultra-polished woods that are the picture of perfection as curved walls and closets, and pristine white walls and floors.
