VILLA SCHOORL opgeleverd en in de Volkskrant
3 Augustus 2015

Vandaag is er in de Volkskrant op pagina V10 een bijzonder artikel gepubliceerd over het project Villa te Schoorl, welke recent is voltooid. Architect Studio Prototype wordt geprezen om uiterste zorgvuldigheid en oog voor detail. De villa is een moderne interpretatie van een schuur als woonboerderij gesitueerd in een prachtig surrealistisch duinlandschap.

Verschillende functionele volumes worden door een houten dakconstructie op een sculpturale wijze aan elkaar gekoppeld. Door de toepassing van grote glazen gevels ontstaat hierbij veel openheid in de vorm van een open veranda. Dit versterkt de relatie met de mooie natuurlijke omgeving.
De kopgevel is vervaardigd uit gewalst staal, dat tegen roest behandeld is met een speciale coating. De door Dunia Coatings i.s.m. Studio Prototype ontwikkelde transparante coating laat de walshuid van het staal zichtbaar.
