Mart van Schijndel
location Utrecht
function museum, private house
contributed by martvanschijndelfoundation

The house that Mart van Schijndel designed for himself in 1992 is hidden away behind a modern fa├žade. The house is an enclosed urban oasis in an inner courtyard in the heart of the city. It can be understood as a 'reversed' patio dwelling. The light streams in generously through big glass surfaces, but the interior remains out of sight. The triangular floor plan creates a light well surrounded by two patio-like gardens. With the help of two-stage hinges, one of three glass partition walls which forms a sharp corner, can be turned completely outward, so that the patios and light well form a whole. On the southern side of this part is a low block with living room, study and workshop. A higher block is located on the northern side with kitchen and sanitary facilities on the ground floor and bedroom, guestroom and bathroom on the 1st floor. Experimental and exceptional details are the glass doors that hinge on silicone glue, with which they are 'hung' on their stainless steel frames.
