Villa in Blaricum
A transparent house with plenty of glass. A house where indoors is outdoors and outdoors is indoors and both seem to melt into the surrounding nature. The choice of materials for this house was unconventional, plaster work with black wooden sections, steel, concrete and zinc. The design by Wolterinck was inspired by the architecture of the wooden houses on Long Island near New York. One remarkable stylistic element Wolterinck designed is the twenty-metre-long skylight that connects all the rooms in the house with each other – a hallway with a glass roof. It creates the illusion of being able to touch the clouds or the stars. Wolterinck’s familiar modest style and use of colour create calm and balance.
