DPL Europesent us photos and information regarding Villa Noord-Brabant, a modern residential project representing the ultimate fusion of lightingdesign and architecture, two disciplines which when in perfect harmony, complement and strengthen each other. Every aspect of the lightingdesign is carefully planned to emphasize the unique architectural style of this building. The deliberate choice for indirect LED light, accentuates the clean and modern lines of the villa’s exterior. Inside a spatial effect is created, by using light fixtures that give an illusion of a 3D “light-column”. The bright light columns wonderfully accentuate the height and spatiality of the building.
With a mixture of cool and warm light throughout the whole house, the combination of modern and natural materials used by the architect are accentuated. Beside this, it gives warmth to places where needed, creating cozy areas in an open space. In the Spa and Fitness area of the home, blue accents and light shining through plants were used to bring nature and water together and create a healthy and relaxing experience. The interior, exterior and lighting architecture are in complete harmony, making this villa perfect for everyone looking for comfort, health and nature, in a clean and modern setting.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
