Modern Blend Of Yellow Cubic Volumes: House A&J In Eindhoven
Displaying an intriguing yellow exterior, House A&J is a compact modern residence envisioned by CKX architecten in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The house belongs to a young family with two children and a special interest in modern Dutch architecture. Showcasing a rectangular shape, a flat roof and plenty of glass openings, the villa was visually integrated in its neighborhood, yet its light yellow finish makes it stand out.
The overall shape and layout of the building was driven by exterior factors: “Strict regulations from city chamber ranging from distances to fringes, access and total amount of development area and volume and an adoration for modern architecture brought about this play with the yellow carved out cubic volumes. The resultant shape proposes a dialog between a range of various levels and voids, using light to draw or ponder the surfaces, proposing a changeable reading of space and volumes during the day”, explained the architects. Interiors are spacious and energetic, with natural light enhancing its contemporary home design.
