Villa L is a modern flat roof house and is located in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The project was sponsored by Powerhouse Company in close cooperation with ROUGH completed to meet the wants and needs of a young family with three children. The house impresses with a well-tended garden and is surrounded by a lush forest. The interior is amazingly simple, but very stylish. Villa L faces the sun with a view of the garden. Each floor has its own identity and is very open and bright thanks to the large glass walls.

The young family wanted a house that was still surprising, open and spatially divided, yet minimalist and luxurious. The Powerhouse Company team decided to integrate these contradictions into the design of the house. This resulted in three floors, one of which is underground, which have very different characters and functionalities as the basis for family life.

The ground floor is spacious and open. It includes the service rooms, toilets, stairs and offers easy access to the luxuriously designed living spaces. The kitchen and living room are maximally oriented towards the sun. Two more rooms are located on the north side next to the entrance. The rooms on the first floor offer space for sleeping and privacy. All rooms there are decorated with dark wood and surrounded by a delicate roof garden. Each room is like its own world with its own view over the wooded landscape. The curved basement is used for guests, wellness and storage.
