Architecture Remy Meijers | Farmhouse in the Green Heart

Remy Meijers | Farmhouse in the Green HeartThe facade of this hundred year old farmhouse in the centre of the Dutch province of Utrecht (the green heart) raises memories of the past. Not too long ago there was livestock in the stables, and the haystack in the yard was filled with hay. On the outside nothing seems to have changed. The former summerhouse has hardly changed and the typical wooden cornice and the shutters are well preserved.

Even the separation between the barns and de former house is still visible. But inside the Dutch interior designer Remy Meijers combined original elements with contemporary materials. The authentic rafters that carry the ceiling create a rustic atmosphere. The wooden cupboards in the entrance and the parquet in the living room have a similar effect.

But thanks to the white walls the interior still has a contemporary look. Just like the interior, part of the furniture is designed by Remy Meijers. For instance the stools at the bar that separates kitchen and dining room.
