Modern Dutch Circular House | 360 Villa | 123DV

Thank you 123DV for sending us this.

A life with dogs
The family consists of a couple and their beautiful Alaskan malamute dogs. This time, our slogan 'Living in a tailored suit' got a special dynamic: the tailoring of our design to the requirements of an ultimate personal experience of living also concerned the arctic dogs that are important in their lives. It is important for the couple to stay in contact with their dogs, both in and outside of the house. The dogs ask a lot of attention and therefore they need a lot of contact with their owners. Also the dogs need a shelter outside.
Why a modern circular villa ?

A continuous window that is shaped in a circle all around the house provides a 360 degree connection between the inside and outside of the house. Therefore, continuous visual contact with the dogs is made possible – that is why this time we thought of designing a circular villa.The canopy goes all the way around the house and offers the dogs a sheltered place in case of rainy days, no matter the wind direction. On sunny days it provides the necessary amount of shade.

On one side of the villa, near the bedroom and kitchen, the garden floor goes half way up to the facade. This way the residents can look their dogs in the eye, being at the same eye level, for instance while cooking or when wishing them good night. The hill also provides privacy at the side of the street......more at 123DV
