A Dutch village inspired the design of this solar-powered home

Within a cluster of traditional Dutch homes in The Hague, local firm Global Architects designed a single-family home that stands out from its neighbors with its contemporary design, yet relates to the surroundings with a layout that references the concept of a village.

Aptly named the Hidden Village, the modern home also distinguishes itself with its use of energy efficient technologies that span passive solar principles to the use of solar panels and an air-heat pump.

As a potential forever home, the all-electric home emphasizes adaptability so that the rooms can be easily changed to fit different needs over time.
