In a Netherlands forest, Zecc Architects have repurposed an old railway cottage. The former stopping-point in Santpoort-Noord is of modern design, with glass walls and metal accents. The home doesn’t ignore its history, though—faded brick walls suggest the building’s functional origins. High wooden beams and a crisp white staircase transform the preexisting space into an impressive house.
