Tasked with remodeling an already once-renovated 1960s house near Eindhoven, local firm WillemsenU Architecten went for an extreme makeover, opting to cover the structure in very en vogue dark timber cladding. The old white stucco facade wasn't the only drastic change.The designers also extended the space to add a roomy study and relocated the living area to the rear of the house to take advantage of the redesigned garden, now boasting a new pond, paving, and outdoor seating. Throw in the solar-control glazing, which lets in light while reflecting some of the heat, and this revamped home is all set for summer.
