The Chimney House in Bosschenhoofd, the Netherlands has a simple idea: design a home that emphasizes the chimney, a disappearing feature in architecture. The house was designed by Onix and has several chimneys in different sizes and shapes. The house has a total of four chimneys, which are used as channels for the hearth, but also allow light and space to the interior.
The ground floor of the house has large windows, which form two sides of the house to allow light in and offer spectacular views. The second floor is much more secluded in order to keep out the heat.
Wooden planks played a large role in the design of the house, with planks being used in many different elements in the house. Planks were not only used to make shuttering, but also used for the façade, the finishing of the roof and the interior walls.
