Villa Overgooi is a special residential building. At first glance, it looks like a single villa but there are actually five! It was commissioned by five private clients who had five homes designed on this plot of land measuring 5,000 m2, with the caveat that they should look like a single villa. This led to a series of spatial transformations that merged five unique homes into a single compact building. The design also made the best possible use of the surrounding natural landscape. Each floor was rotated 90 degrees from the floor above/below it, giving the houses two different orientations. The first floor runs from east to west, connecting the view between the street and the garden. The second floor runs from north to south, optimizing the views out and the amount of sun the houses receive. Each building was then elevated to give the second floor of each home a view out over the Gooimeer lake dike.

Villa Overgooi was nominated for the Dutch AM NAi 2018 and the Golden Pyramid awards 2008.
