reSET architecture
location Culemborg
function private house
contributed by Mima01

Reset architecture designed a renovation and extension of a small decaying farmhouse with a beautiful apple orchard, located in an idyllic location in the Dutch Betuwe region. The design strategy for the renovation of the derelict farmhouse aimes to maximise the connection with the landscape, direct and metaphorical. A new annex is placed in the second line, behind the existing farmhouse, inferior in height but with a strong presence, providing a backdrop for the farmhouse. In its updated context the old building becomes more prominent in its surroundings. The contrast in architecture between the farmhouse and its new added wing results in an ambiguous synergy. The character of the separate elements is easy to read yet this does not mean their relationship is simple: recognize new changes to the old farm and local historical references to elements in the new volume provide a multiple relationship between the two parts of the whole.

How to get there? I traveled 15 minutes by train from Utrecht to Culemborg and had a nice 25 minutes walk through the old inner town to the Achterweg country road and back to the station via the beautiful river landscape.
