Modern Meets Medieval

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Say you've got modern taste but like to look out the window and imagine you live just west of Gondor, Villa 1 is the place for you. Built in the Ede, the Netherlands, the villa was designed by Powerhouse Company to have optimal views of the surrounding terrain and sun. Half the building is below the ground to meet local zoning laws. The glass box, the architects note, is finally united with the medieval style of spaces carved from the earth. You can park Firefoot, or a Ferrari, in the back and it won't spoil the view.
