Studiokaza was commissioned to make a design proposal for a villa in Midlaren. Fundamental design principles originate from the site, that is located in Drenthe -a rural, northern province of Holland. Morphologically, Villa Planckensloot is based on the classic barn, a widespread posture in the area.
The provincial route between Zuidlaren and Groningen was a conceptual starting point in terms of movement and altering panoramic views on the landscape. While the road meanders through the area, farmyards and trees substitutely block the view, occasionally displaying wide views on grass,- meadowlands and forests.
