On the boarders of the Frisian lake, Pikmeer, Jos Blom and Tim Piët designed KHM26, a holiday home for a private client. With its vast meadows on one side and the openness of the lake on the other, the house has a panoramic view all around. The compact and clear design enforces this grand view. The house is characterized by its large glass facades and a tough cover of Corten steel. A concrete core organizes the floor-plan on the inside and emphasizes the entrance on the outside.
One of the consequences of the unique location at the edge of the lake was that the building site was hard to reach for construction. Therefore it was decided to build the house elsewhere. This way it became possible to assure a high quality construction. Finally, the 240-ton house was shipped to its last destination in a spectacular manner.
