The owners have moved into a new country home with a large garden of about 1 ha. They have grown children, who frequently come to visit their parents and enjoy the countryside. The owners are joyful people who love to receive, give parties and play. They want to play tennis, take a swim to cool down and relax in the outdoor whirlpool. They need enough parking space for their visitors to station their cars.
The triangular form of the plot presents a challenge at first, but soon reveals itself as a benediction. The tennis court can be hidden away easily, by putting it into the outer corner. The very corner becomes a small forest with a secret space.
Together we choose to build a natural swimming pond with small beach and wooden deck. It can be reached by a winding path, which leads through several leaf shaped planting beds with different meadow like planting styles. The secret hiding place can be reached in this way on the other side of the garden.
The terrace is large enough to allow big receptions and the jacuzzi is integrated here as well.
There is still a big open space, which the owners chose to plant with lawn. It is an option to leave most of it rather wild and to mow it rarely.
This is a design, which emphasizes the playful nature of the owners, creating a slightly dancing almost rolling atmosphere.
