Wood-clad extension for residential property

MoederscheimMoonen Architects was commissioned by a private client to develop a plan for the renovation and expansion of a residential property on the outskirts of the village of Stein in Southern Limburg, the Netherlands.

The former worker’s house is situated at the foot of a heavily-sloped embankment, on the edge of the Maas river valley. However, its proximity to the dike also meant that there were limited options to realise a garden to the rear of the building. In addition, many of the home’s facilities were very dated and/or cramped.

MoederscheimMoonen’s design effectively resolved the various spatial bottlenecks found in and around the home through an ingenious combination of renovation and expansion. It proposed making a large opening in one of the house’s side walls, near the existing living room. This connects the living room with a new garden section to the side of the building. This corner of the residential property also features the most prominent extension, which significantly increases the living room area at ground level, as well as accommodating a spacious bathroom on the first floor.

The entire expansion is characterised by an orthogonal, cleanly-delineated volume and is covered with fine, vertically-grained padauk cladding. The wooden facade alternates a range of dimensions and depths, lending it a rich variety of lines and shadows. The design has grasped the new link with the garden as an opportunity to strengthen the building’s profile with a large outdoor terrace and a gazebo in the style of the addition.
