Rieteiland House by Hans van Heeswijk Architecten
By Freshome.com on Mar 23, 2012
Envisioned by Amsterdam-based studio Hans van Heeswijk Architecten, Rieteiland House and is a 2,900 square foot, three story home especially developed for the van Heeswijk family. The residence was constructed in a peaceful setting, on the island of IJburg, near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. More details were provided by the project team: “While the front of this waterside house is clad in perforated aluminium panels, the rear is entirely glazed, so that residents can watch the sun set. Some of these panels are positioned behind windows and can be opened automatically to allow light to enter. The waterfront façade, by contrast, is completely open and orientated to the view. On the second floor, part of the volume is omitted to create space for a screened roof terrace”. The materials used to build the residence were glass, concrete, steel and wood.
