Renovation and interior design project of an existing 1930s house in Wassenaar

The house was for sale for some time and needed to be completely renovated. In the preliminary phase, we assessed the house together with the clients and made a study of the spatial possibilities.
Based on this study, the clients bought the house and we started the design process.
The Resthouse Wassenaar concept is to transform a dark dated lofty house into an open, light and surprising house that offers all the conveniences and comfort of our time.
Furthermore, the clients stated that they were not at home much in their current home. They preferred to sit in a catering tent to relax. From here the concept arose to design a light, modern and relaxing house with surprising elements such as a void and an extension over the full width of the house.
The void and the extension over the full width give a totally new spatial dynamism to the house and give the house much more daylight. The continuous concrete floor from the inside to the outside and the wafer-thin aluminum sliding door ensure a strong indoor-outdoor relationship.
The following sustainable measures have been implemented during the home renovation;
– new insulated ground floor with underfloor heating
– post-insulation of walls and hood
– double glazing
