Using corner folding glass doors really makes this compact space into a real vacation home. Holiday House by Bloem en Lemstra Architecten is situated on Vlieland, an island in the northern Netherlands. It’s like two walls just fold away and the room becomes one with the outside. The overhang area becomes an extension of the ceiling, actually making the room physically larger. A great deal larger. And the deck extends the room even further. In the summer, the doors can stay open to enjoy the combination of indoor/outdoor living. In the winter, with the glass doors closed – you stay warm, but never feel closed in. Ceiling to floor windows provide great light. And while the doors are clearly the backbone of this compact design – we love that compact little fireplace, too.
