The Walta-Elmers family approached VMX Architects to design their dream home on one of the best places on this planet: ‘Kleine Rieteiland’ (It is one of the islands of the Amsterdam district of IJburg).

They clearly told the architects about their requirements; for instance, they want a spacious open house with plenty of natural light. The size of the plot is small; it measures around 8 by 30 meters. Check out the beautiful design of the villa RR house.

The designers and architects studied the model for several months and finally came up with the concept of ‘Woonlandschap’ (living-landscape). The final floor plan has living and the kitchen on the ground floor but in a split level typology. The outside area is also partially covered to create a semi-open space.

The whole landscape is designed at higher and lower levels. A multifunctional cellar is placed under a higher level. If you look at the facade of the structure, you’ll notice that it is entirely closed with patio blocks. It looks like a floating box over the open landscape from the ground level.

The main attraction point of this house is the massive spiral staircase, which connects the upper level to the ground one. A circular roof light has been placed exactly above the stairs, which beautifully brings light into the living landscape.

When it comes to private housing designs, architects have to keep many things in mind, such as building coverage, strength, the stability of the structure, and many more.

Here also VMX architects face the challenge of expressing the character and personal desires of the future occupants. All the desired requirements of the residents should be solved such as offering them ample living space and garden with privacy.

The plot only is about 8 by 30 meters, and the urban plan challenged all architects to experiment with the full space of the land freely. Not only the designs, but they also have to keep various restrictions in their mind, such as there should be parking in the house and building coverage.

The thing is the living landscape increases the overall cost of the project, if architects want to use the entire land in an efficient manner.

The bedroom is also quite spacious and tranquil. Minimal decors and furnishing have been used to create a relaxing atmosphere. The surroundings are full of breathtaking scenes, so windows are there to enjoy these natural views.
