For this project, Allard Architecture was asked to design a new family summerhouse near the lakes of the Kaag in South Holland. In the design, the family was looking for a contemporary retreat that could also relate to the landscape and the surrounding vernacular. The result is a clean, modern aesthetic throughout, with dark-stained wood finishing the exterior and the interior finished in natural birch.
