Daylighthouse 2 is an open-plan house with three split-level floors. The timber frame, made of FSC certified larch TANALISED E WaxedWood from Foreco of Dalfsen, was prefabricated to cut the time needed to construct the house. The treated frame supports, wooden cladding and joinery are also made from TANALISED E WaxedWood, and the ceilings of untreated okoumé (gaboon) wood. The white-painted window frames are meranti, an Asian hardwood.
Located on the shores of Ijsselmeer, the largest artificial lake in Western Europe, Daylighthouse 2 overlooks a marsh populated with wild birds. The architect designed the house to blend into the local environment and to make the most of the natural light, including large windows, a full glass facade on the south-west side of the ground floor and a glass-roofed ‘winter garden.’ The roof terrace has amazing views across the lake and over to Amsterdam and Marken. The project was constructed by Bouwbedrijf Jadi, based in Genemuiden, and took around a year to build, at an overall cost of about €230,000.
