JUMA architects transformed a typical 1976 bungalow into a contemporary villa with a pleasant holiday feeling.
Nothing remains of the original layout. The changes start with the entrance door, which has been moved to a different location. The stairs to the basement and the attic were removed and replaced by two stair hatches, freeing up a considerable floor area that previously only served as circulation space. The garage was sacrificed as well. Not only because of the space it occupied, but mainly because it completely blocked the view on the most beautiful part of the garden. The unused attic space above the garage was opened up to the roof; in this way, JUMA created the perfect place to house the kitchen. The massive Vertigo lamp was hung above the central kitchen island, where it comes fully into its own.
