Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands. The house itself and the mostly customized furnishings were designed by Liong Lie of the Rotterdam-based 123DV. Although the structure from some angles resembles today’s favorite and by now highly overused form – long, narrow boxes situated at odd angles – the design of this villa manages to avoid that cliché by locating only one floor above ground. The result is a classic, modern residence that functions well for the family inhabiting it, yet looks like it could have existed since the 1950s. The ground floor and principal living area of the two-story residence is divided into two. On one side are the master bedroom and two kids’ bedrooms (all with separate bathrooms) plus two small studios.
