Villa Hoek is a private villa built for a young working couple. The plot is situated near a fairly busy road in Weesp, however to the rear of the building the beautiful river Vecht borders the garden.
This contrast made us give the front part of the house a different look/design than the rear of the house: the front facade has a rigid modern feeling to it with it’s white stucco and geometric form. The back of the house is completely built of wood. The wooden columns, western red cedar facade and sink roof form a powerful and sturdy appearance.
