Merry-Go-Round

The project

Like a convent garden, the Merry-Go-Round has a gallery. The various functions have not been accommodated in rooms, but in more or less open, back-to-back alcoves, all of which have a view of the surrounding countryside via the gallery. The alcoves are highly integrated: walls, lighting and furniture often overlap The narrow vertical windows allow the residents to determine when and where daylight enters the interior. This is a house that people can make their own.

Committee

Merry-Go-Round is a holiday home surrounded by greenery. Instead of rooms, the home has open recesses, which via the gallery offer a view of the surroundings. The interior of the house breathes profound integration: walls, lighting, and furniture are in complete harmony. The narrow vertical windows can be closed with shutters.
