On Wednesday 20 February 2019, the winners of the second edition of the Frame Awards 2019 were announced and some of the best Dutch architecture firms are at the top!
The Tiny Holiday Home designed by i29 Interior Architects & Chris Collaris has been nominated the ‘House of the Year' Frame Awards 2019. With a footprint of only 55 m2, the Tiny Holiday Home still has a luxurious feel of space, and all around panoramas to the surrounding nature. This compact home is built for a family of four and it includes a living room, a kitchen/dining room, a patio, three bedrooms, one bathroom and two toilets. The layout is developed from the inside-out, the smart arrangement of functions make use of every cm2. Situated on an elongated island plot close to the lake, the positioning of the building volume is related to the views on the surrounding water and the orientation on the sun. The design team made use of simple materials like natural oak wooden panels – or stained black to combine with the rough pinewood facade – and a continuing polished concrete floor. i29 Interior Architects & Chris Collaris strived for a design strategy in which architecture and interior come together in a model combination.
