Makkinga House

Set between two villages in the northern Netherlands, the Makkinga House replaces a cramped, closed-off home with an open, airy structure. The east side is home to the entrance, but otherwise closed for privacy, while the western side is used for the open living area and connects the interior with the exterior via floor-to-ceiling windows and a long veranda, separated from the more private outdoor space to the south. The sleeping quarters have integrated wall storage units that help preserve the sleek design, while the study is set such that you can see guests when they arrive.
