The ultramodern Villa Kogelhof Wins ARC13 Architecture Award

The ultramodern Villa Kogelhof in Kamperland, the Netherlands has just been awarded one of the prestigious Dutch ARC13 Architecture Prize. The building’s designers, Amsterdam-based Paul de Ruiter Architects, were honored with the prize — alongside three other award winners — at a festive award ceremony in Rotterdam. Villa Kogelhof is a privately owned, energy efficient home set on 25 hectares of protected land.
Comprised of several energy efficient features, the home’s modern interior enjoys a constant comfortable temperature while simultaneously remaining energy neutral year round. More than just a gorgeous energy-saving structure, however, the Villa’s “floating” home design is a perfect example of how modern minimalist architecture can still embody a strong ecological consciousness.
