What's better than an elegant house with a clear concept? Architectural photography bringing that concept to life with a little artistry and a lot of humor...
Villa Peet in Lelystad, The Netherlands by Studio Klink was designed with Alice in Wonderland in mind. By creating contrasting spatial experiences they were able to create clearly defined spaces which allude to continuity while forcing you to move through compressive, contrasting spaces—i.e. "rabbit holes"—on a journey through the house. Sound a little cerebral?
If you don't enjoy the architects' rigor and restraint, how about the clever photography of Lars van den Brink that brings both the house and its concept alive, making it accessible to all. Hard lines of clean architecture contrasted with little white bunnies everywhere—what's not to love?
The rigor of the architects and the humor of the photography help remind us that we should always take our design efforts seriously but we should never take the results too seriously.
