Rieteiland House, Netherlands.

According to the architects: “The front of this waterside house, on the recently developed neighbourhood of LJburg east of Amsterdam, is clad in perforated aluminium panels, the rear is entirely glazed, so that residents can watch the sun set. Some of these panels are positioned behind windows and can be opened automatically to allow light to enter. The waterfront façade, by contrast, is completely open and orientated to the view. On the second floor, part of the volume is omitted to create space for a screened roof terrace. Typical of Van Heeswijk’s designs is the application of ‘timeless’ materials such as glass, steel, concrete and wood. Rieteiland House was designed by Hans van Heeswijk
