Texel Holiday Home

On the smallest Dutch island of Texel, there are equal populations of sheep and humans, and found scattered throughout the rolling grassy hills are isolated gabled roof structures that would typically contain supplies, tools, and hay.

The simplicity in its execution harkens back to a time when “less is more” went beyond trite cliche and actually held artistic meaning. The beauty of the Highway House lies in it’s simplicity, giving credence to the mantra of a time too often ignored in today’s residential design. Continue reading
