Atlas House

Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Design for a garden on the edge of Eindhoven. The house stands out from its neighbours; with a smaller footprint and an extra story the house manifests itself as a tower. Rotated on a 45 degree angle, the house escapes its environment. The garden follows a similar principle, apparently taking no notice of the house or its neighbours. Four curvy mounts, planted with a mix of ferns and perennials create different spaces and routes. Three large trees – a Pinus sylvestris, a Pinus sylvestris ‘Norska’ and a Gymnocladus dioica – prevent people from looking in and add a layer of evergreen to the garden.
