This Dijk house is a great example of a house with a steel skin. The facades and the roof of this dwelling comprise one entity. The skin, consisting of anthracite-coloured corrugated sheets, is open in strategic places in order to let the environment in.

Maximizing this effect, the entire dwelling is positioned one meter above ground level, resulting on a spacious lower ground floor.

The exterior of the dwelling looks rather solid and closed. The interior experience is one of beautiful spatial impressions. A smart system based on just a few composition rules creates a seemingly irregular pattern of wooden boards.
