VILLA RENOVATION, THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS

A Design and Build approach was the main aspect for this project. This meant that the lines between the professional disciplines were very short and many items could be solved in the work. The Villa was designed by Architect: A.J. Kropholler from 1928 and has many details such as sandstone keystones on the corners and connections to the window frames. His daughter designed stones with figures of animals in them for each block of characteristics. Characteristics are the use of windows with a clear rod division.

The following work has been carried out on both the exterior and interior:
Before the renovation, the detached villa was fully equipped with a new insulated ground floor and on the upper floors the floors were additionally reinforced with new extra wooden floor beams. An additional extension has been realized on the ground floor with a big sky light and new doors opening up towards the garden. The entire villa is equipped with a new home automation system where all lighting and other household equipment can be controlled as also the energy consumption can be monitored. Furthermore, the entire house is extra insulated from the inside and equipped with a heat pump and heat recovery ventilation facility. In addition, solar panels have been placed on the roof in order to make the house as energy neutral as possible.

The existing details of the villa have been respectfully restored and also included in the new appearance by using new stucco connections and wooden finishes around window frames and doors in the interior. The entire house has also been fitted with new window frames in the style as it was conceived in the original villa. The villa as a whole has been returned to its former glory and meets the new requirements regarding insulation value and sustainability, making the villa ready for the new test of time.
