Dutch architects, Denieuwegeneratie Architecten (translated: The New Generation), completed this Dutch Mountain house in December 2011. The house is built into the side of a mountain (hill?) with half of the house hidden below the rock surface. It is clear that the architects had fun with this one.
Making asymmetry look good. Skylights in the floor. Taxidermy and rocket ships. Cool.
Jaguar shelving unit? Thats... amazing. Can't say I've ever seen that before. The engine and roof were removed from the car to lighten the load a bit and create room for shelving. On the right, skateboard stairs! Hell yeah. This house rules.
If I were exploring this house as a child (or at any age), climbing up into the driver seat would be priority 1.
The basement rooms receive light through portals in the ceiling. Just because your room is underground with no windows doesn't mean you can't have awesome natural daylighting.
The kids seem to like it. It seems the designers had kept them in mind throughout the process, or their own inner child.
Reminiscent of McDonald's PlayPlace. Or Chuck E Cheese?
Here it is: Denmark's largest mountain.
Fun house to sled down! Gah ultimate childhood dream house.
