Dutch architect Hans van Heeswijk designed his personal residence, a waterfront abode known as Rieteiland House on the simply recently developed island of IJburg near Amsterdam. I’m on a regular basis insanely jealous of architects because of they on a regular basis keep inside the nicest homes. No truthful.
This big, delicate-crammed residence was a labor of affection for van Heeswijk, who challenged himself to push the bounds of his skills and the provides and methods used. The home is clad in perforated aluminium panels and the rear is solely glazed, so that residents can watch the photo voltaic set. Once as soon as extra, no truthful.
Part of the second flooring is completely open so that the architect may need a screened roof terrace.
There is a central spine contained within the developing wrapped in wenge that accommodates storage, loos, a laundry chute, and cables (for a laundry dumbwaiter – cool!).
The house has been nominated for the Amsterdam Architecture Prize 2012.
