Built on a raised mound lies this wooden bungalow home consisting of four interconnected slanted volumes overlooking the fields surrounding the house
LITTLE BIG BUNGALOW
SUSTAINABLE BUNGALOW OOSTERWOLD
Location: Almere Oosterwold
Programme: residential, urban farming
This compact family home is built up out of four compact volumes connected by a central cross. The wood-clad volumes are lifted from the ground by a set-back plinth and form a contrast with the central cross which will be finished with floor to ceiling windows and doors to ensure uninterrupted lines of sight throughout the building.
The playful roofscape not only accommodates the integrated solar panels but also introduces a sense of spaciousness within the compact interiors spaces, turning this home into a little big bungalow. The home boasts generous openings facing the fields of Oosterwold enabling you to slow down and enjoy the wide-open views.
This is the second home that HOP is currently building in Oosterwold. The roof of each volume is angled downwards to keep the overall building profile subtle while at the same time keeping interiors of these blocks feel spacious.
Maquette: Studio Bouhuijs
multiple angled volumes result in a playful ensemble
the angles of the blocks have been deliberately chosen to emphasize certain lines of sight and to catch the sun all day long
the glass corner in the living area slides open turning indoor area into outdoor space
by executing the roof of the living room as an overhanging structure this glass corner is freed from columns
the organisation of the interior spaces is future-proof and adjustable
by keeping in mind possible different scenarios the interior can be easily adjusted to accommodate a larger family
