A house on the Kagerplassen
This historical house is situated on a gorgeous location right on the water and it has its own dock. The Kaag Lakes are a sailor’s and nature lover’s paradise. Living here is a dream come true for many.
Return to the building what it has lost over the years
The oldest part of the building dates as far back as the 17th century. Several rounds of renovations in the following centuries added a number of elements to the building. The new owners will keep up with this tradition. However, the original character has completely disappeared, and it is our aim to do what we can to bring it back. Returning to the house what was lost over the years is our biggest challenge in this project.

The walkway in the open kitchen is a real eye-catcher

The client’s wish
This is going to be our new family home on the water. We would like to return it to its former glory and give it back its lost character. This requires a thorough renovation.
Ideas
The new veranda allows the residents to make use of the outdoor space for many months of the year. This characteristic American white woodwork veranda is surrounded by balustrades and gives the house a nostalgic touch.
