Dirrix & Van Wylick
Rein van Wylick
Showing due respect to the landscape, this villa nestles against the high bank of the river Maas. A free-standing volume containing doctor’s and dentist’s practices connects to the house along a narrow passage. The spectacular location is exploited to the full with a panoramic view from the living room of a bend in the river. The various living levels are interlinked by a series of stairs that line up along the introverted north facade. When descending the stairs, the river once again looms into view through a single narrow vertical window.
