Architecture GROUP A | Villa Bussum

Villa Bussum is situated in a lush, leafy neighbourhood in Bussum; a small town near Amsterdam.

The design for the villa by GROUP A appears both modern and sculptural, and interacts in a natural way with its surroundings. By using slanting walls and roofs the abstract building volume feels comfortably embedded in the landscape. A cut-out corner facing the street in front of the house, clearly indicates the main entrance.

On the eastern side of the villa, a secluded garden and a second entrance can be found.

A comfortable porch and a 15 meter wide panorama window face the garden, and double up as a transition between the villa and the garden at the back of the house. Both gardens in front and at the back of the house are linked to each other by a sloping path.

This descending path extends itself to underneath the cantilevering villa, thereby providing garden access for the basement floor.

Location: Bussum, The Netherlands
