villa rotonda

dutch practice bedaux de brouwer architecten has designed 'villa rotonda', a single family dwelling positioned adjacent to a 
heavily traveled roundabout in goirle, netherlands. addressing security and privacy for the inhabitants, the strategic arrangement 
of the perimeter walls creates an introspective atmosphere. a vernacular appearance and stone gable roof was maintained to 
reference the zoning requirements of the established residential fabric. a shallow pool surrounds the home while a void between 
the masonry walls allows fish to swim freely into an open air court and abut the large glass windows bordering the ground level.
