Design Inspiration: Sustainable Dutch Architecture

We are once again drawing inspiration from homes across the Atlantic. This time we take a closer look at this Dutch home, which is embedded in the moorland. Designed by Dutch architects, Denieuwegeneratie Architecten, this home is literally built halfway into the ground.

According to the Dutch architecture firm, “The thermal mass keeps this warmth and cools the house in the summer.” The glass facade allows natural night to filter in and also provides heat during the daylight hours.

This shelving unit gives new meaning to repurposing. The engine and roof were removed from this Jaguar to create the shelving.

Skateboard stairs, another great job repurposing.

We love the openness of this home.
