Dutch architectural firm 123DV has designed Brick Wall house in Woerden, The Netherlands. Following is some information provided by the architects, “The location of this residence is highly exceptional: flanked by small-scale detached semi-classical houses with gabled roofs on one side, a large apartment block planned on the other. The client wanted his dwelling to provide maximum privacy.

The house represents the transition between these two worlds: the façade facing the apartment block is closed with the exception of a protruding stairwell that offers an intriguing view along the façade; the other side of the building consists of an informal configuration of rectangular volumes fitted with a large number of windows.

The house, entirely built of brick, blends in with its surroundings. It is a lively type of brick, in a sleek bond with emphatically horizontal joints. The contrastive interior was kept as austere and clean as possible and features flawlessly plastered white surfaces. Kitchen, cupboards and built-in appliances are completely white as well. The dining table with a draw-leaf was specially designed for this house.”
