Villa Dali in The Netherlands by 123DV Architecture

This home, called Villa Dali by 123DV Architecture, is spectacular. It might not be for everyone, but if you love architecture or art (or both) I bet you’re gonna love this one. It was also selected for the WAN long list for Best House of the Year, 2009.

“Home is where the art is” is the theme of this home, which captures the character of Dali, Jugendstill forms, Spanish facades and nautical life in one villa.

The clients asked for a very personal house which would reflect their passions. They are nautical minded and have a love of art, sculptures and especially the work of Salvador Dali. During the initial design discussions 123DV architecture were also shown pictures of ancient Spanish architecture. They were fascinated by the closed white stucco facades and metal fences in Jugendstill design. So, the challenge was to combine in one villa the beautiful Jugendstill forms, the closed facades, the treasures of the diving world and the unique works of the artist Dali.

For the design of the house, 123DV Architecture made use of the Paranoiac-critical method by Salvador Dali (creating optical illusions). The result is a cylindrical white stucco main building with a nautilus spiral structure inside; representing the world of diving. The closed facade facing the street represents the so called Spanish architecture with a blown up Jugendstill pattern in the six meter wooden panel as the entrance. In the center of the house there is a double story cylindrical space. The furniture has also been custom designed. Traces of Dali’s fluid watch art can be found in their design.
