The recently completed house, by Dutch design office zone zuid architecten, has a few features that make it unique, like the window that protrudes out from the house, making it large enough to have a deep window seat for someone to sit in.

The back of the house has a swimming pool and a partly covered sun terrace. At night, you can really see how the backyard is lit up, perfect for nighttime entertaining.

The kitchen palette is a combination of wood, steel, and concrete. The kitchen island appears to float above the floor. A small area for wine storage is also included that features hidden lighting, essentially placing the wine on display.
