House S is located in Breda, in the southern part of the Netherlands. According to the architects, “the living area is raised above the surrounding land, so that the view on the natural environment is optimal. Further solidifying the home’s connection to nature, large floor-to-ceiling windows frame the view, while giving the house a light and transparent character. Since the residents are home workers, private and business rooms are separated in an ingenious way, where they touch but never cross. Providing a beautiful view on the environment and allowing for a bright, natural lit lower level.” With an inspiring architecture, an interior design that is both functional and elegant, and extensive views of the beautiful landscape, House S fits our notion of a clever modern home.
