A Beautiful Modern House (6 Pics)

Truth be told, they had me at that hot tub. Pop open the latch and let’s all jump in..this house is meant for parties! (What the heck is a kid doing in this picture? Where be the hot ladies?) This modern house, called the Villa Berkel, was designed by architect Paul de Ruiter. Located in Veenendaal, The Netherlands, it keeps to an inside/outside theme that I’ve come to love. By using natural light and playing with the idea of open space, the house creates a connection to the outdoors in a warm and comforting way, one that’s not typical of a modern house. Per the Contemporist: “To create openness and lightness and to give the residents the feeling living outside in the green, the house is entirely oriented to the secluded garden at the south. Every room in the villa looks directly out on to this garden, because three of the four faades are made of glass.”
