A trip to Ameland rural home
To get to Ameland rural home, you need to take the first boat that departs from Holwert at a quarter past seven. While enjoying the view of the sea, you will arrive in Ameland just below the Nes three quarters of an hour later. Then you still have to drive a few more kilometers, to the east of the city of Buren, are the beautiful Het Oerd and de Hon nature reserves. And it is there, on the edge of the greenery and between the dunes, that there is room for a brand new country house that is the Ameland dune house.
Ameland dunes house design
Like any holiday home, and try to stay respectful of the municipal requirement that the holiday home must have a facade made of ebony parts of thatched roofs. In making it happen, designers have created a special design in which the thatched roof has a tight frame at the front. A track with skylights and solar panels has been designed within the roof area. The windows are carefully positioned on the facade and provide spectacular views at dusk and at night.
Holiday home surrounded by dunes
This holiday home is in the most beautiful and strategic location that has been integrated into the landscape naturally, where the view and light largely determine the layout of the house. This allows residents to enjoy the view and the warmth of the sun optimally. Its location which is surrounded by sand dunes also determines the level of the house’s height in relation to the surrounding sand dunes.
Holiday home interior design
In collaboration with interior designer Ina Matt has designed a playful layout on the inside with height differences, a large loft and stairs to a hidden children’s area. Custom furnishings have been designed in all rooms, creating a unique and vivid image. Natural materials and classic structures in the beam and truss technique have been used. The whole ensures a unique and special design of indoor and outdoor spaces. The dune house exudes serene simplicity and offers every comfort for a relaxing holiday in the midst of nature.
