size: 165 m2
programme: studio, garage, storage, porch
On a plot in rural Hertme we were asked to design an annex to the existing house . The assignment was to create the new volume secondary to the main house, requiring a studio , storage room, garage and a porch on the garden side . The annex therefore presents itself quite modestly in shape and color, and has the typical proportions of a medium-sized barn. Light enters the interior in just the right places , without compromising the authentic closedness. Outerwall openings that do not need light, such as a garage door, are hidden behind the vertical batten facade.
By keeping the building comprehensible , the openings in only the right places and with the use a roof made of a profiled steel sheet , the overall costs are budget-friendly.
