Holiday Home is a minimal house located in Texel, Netherlands, designed by Orange Architects. The solid yet sculptural interior, which is covered by the black wooden shell, creates a strong contrast between the warm inside and the bold outside. Large windows on the south side extend the living room out onto the covered terrace and further into the garden, fully integrating the tiny house into its natural surroundings. The Holiday Home represents a different approach to space. Instead of dividing the house into different spaces by walls, we decided to divide spaces according to the specific use at any moment in time. During the day the house transforms into an open, fluid space. Spaces extend even further, through large windows and opened doors, into the surroundings.
