This geometric gem becomes one with its environment.
Cropping up from the stark dunes on the island of Terschelling in the Netherlands, Marc Koehler Architects envisioned an unconventional home that would be innovative in design, while providing tailor-made functionality for the residents. The architects took a holistic approach to the design process, integrating architecture, landscape, and interior design into the final concept. Central to the process was an outward focus on the surroundings and a reverence for nature. The sea, sunlight, and local wind patterns intimately informed the overall design, and exterior materials were carefully chosen to play off colors and textures already present in the natural landscape.
