villa geldrop

amsterdam based studio, hofman dujardin architecten has completed 'villa geldrop', a freestanding 
family home in the netherlands. the residence, which is anchored into the earth by a perpendicular 
running slope, is located at the edge of its site next to an existing barn whose overall form it mimics. 
by positioning the structure into the axis of the landscape, the unit is able to absorb and reflect the 
farmland that surrounds it.
