Family house design

Designing a place to call home

Ellen and Adrie need a change. The house is old. It’s finished. But the place is beautiful, and they do not really like to leave. They live in a gorgeous setting, with space for themselves, their three children and two horses.

The first talk made clear that this was an assignment that 12N Urban Matters liked to take on. ‘Warm, open, ordinary and extraordinary, and curious about the future.’ And ready to make it work!

The ideas started flowing, with long conversations about living, about life, about houses and about feeling at home. home and at home. Finding inspiration elsewhere, measuring, building workshops with he kids, and ultimately drawing, designing and building the house.
