Dutch Mountain is a home for a young family, in which the natural context was the start for a hypersustainable, semi-underground house. By burying the house in an artificial mountain, but keeping it open to a maximum on the south side, passive energy is used to the maximum and the house immerges in its context.
The house has been a playground for sustainable design, including hyperlocal and biodegradable materials, organic sewage, biomass heating and an edible roofgarden.
Dutch Mountain was nominated for several awards, including BNA’s Gebouw van het Jaar 2012
The project is designed by denieuwegeneratie, which transformed into Oomen Ontwerpt and krft in 2012.
