This modern apartment is located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
It was designed by Grosingen in 2013.
Outdoor Elegance by Grosingen:
“The building is located on the banks of the River I, in Rotterdam is surrounded by houses that face the heavy harvesting pest of the oak forests. The characteristic marks of the traditional wood construction are left untouched in order to reduce the environmental impact.
The Rudolph, a pellet-engraved timber building, stands on a balance between old and new. Despite its simple shape, the building stands out due to its “wildly rustic” lines. The Rudolph can be active at different times of day, during the day or at night, and thanks to its striking shape its softness is easy to blend in with the surroundings.
The house design is based on the surrounding landscape, the materials are neutral and sustainable. Large overhangs keep in warm air, while the sliding doors are organic and minimalist. The windows, along with the panoramic windows, offer natural light without obstructing the spectacular views. Even though the facade is constructed from wood, it is made entirely from glass which also gives it a casual look.”
