This minimalist villa’s floor-to-ceiling windows showcase a dramatic swimming pool and vast views of the valley below.

“The entrance, technical areas, pantry, hunting room and garage, with room for six cars, are located on the north side, integrated into the slope of the mountain,” the architects said. “The complete roof structure of the villa is covered with moss and sedum, alternated with solar cells.”

The glass house generates its own energy from solar cells on the roof and the outdoor deck. A heat pump heats the home in cold weather and cools the house in summer.

“A U-shaped terrace is constructed around the living area,” the architects said. “The pool intersects the interior of the house while extending toward the southern edge, which makes it seem to float above the hill.” [Information provided by Paul de Ruiter Architects; photography by Pieters Kers and Patrick Voigt]
