Naarden Residence Holland
The principle guiding our new intervention has been to create a house that is sustainable and to reinstate the lost relationship between the house and the landscape. First step was to preserve as much as possible the existing house, limiting both the amount of waste and of new materials. Outer walls and roofs were modernized by adding insulation and replacing all windows.
The central section walls were removed to create a new spatial heart for the house; a living hall giving access to all other parts of the house. The physical bond between house and landscape has been consolidated by an all-glass pavilion attached to the living hall reaching out to the brook. The large skylights of the hall turn the original house’s plan into a three dimensional sculptural shape.
They are also an essential part of the carefully designed system of natural ventilation, the base for the energy concept keeping it comfortable with a minimal energy usage. A floor heating/cooling system is fed by a thermal storage unit. Extra heat sources in winter are a large woodstove in the kitchen and the new glass pavilion that accumulates warmth on sunny days. A solar heat collector on the roof provides the warm water. Further savings of energy are realized by using only LED lighting. All waste water is purified and reused.
