Villa 4.0 - Hilversum - Netherlands
A bungalow in Naarden built in 1967 was extended and transformed by Dick van Gameren into a contemporary villa.
This renovation marks the fourth version of the house. Using the existing structure as a basis, the elevations and roofs were updated. Previous renovations closed off the original heart of the house from the living space and entrance hall. Insulating materials were added and windows and facade elements were replaced. Removing the walls in the centre of the villa created space for a new living hall that overlooks the landscape on four sides.
