Ooze Architects created the Villa Rotterdam II from an existing home that had been incrementally added to over previous decades. The goal was to keep the “soul” of the existing home, while still transforming it into one new, logical whole. Prefabricated wood triangles that directly reference the old roof were used to intuitively create folds and facets that would benefit the interior space. The exterior form references traditional Dutch farms through the use of sedum green roofs and black sustainably-sourced ACCOYA planks. The resulting transition between the new architecture and the old soul of the house happens gradually as one ascends through the structure.
