V35K18 residence is located on the southern corner of an urban block comprising 18 utterly different houses. Due to its distinct design, clear materialisation and dark color the compact building forms a dominant‘corner stone’ within the existing urban fabric. All architectural details aresubordinate to this principle. The massive brick volume is detached fromthe adjacent neighbour building by a glazed void and the square floor-toceilingwindows are detailed flush into the facade. The smaller but longer‘Hilversum-format’ of the bricks allows for an surprising elegancy andnoblesse, and at the same time the black color of the facade assoziatesdirectly with the traditional Dutch buildings dating from the 16th, 17th and18th century.Functional, the residence is set up in a classical Dutch way: work relatedprogram is located on the ground floor, living on the bel-etage and sleepingon the upper floor. The spectacular cascade stairwell situated in the glazedvoid on the long side of the building, generates an overwhelming spacebetween the public and private realm.
