Welcome to our gallery featuring the Valley House by Philip M Dingemanse Architecture + Design.


The design of the house follows the contours of the surrounding hills, and is centered in the valley outlook.

The principal of the design puts a focus on the kitchen and dining room area. The large openings on either side of this space welcomes guests into the home, while also providing an expansive view of the valley from the interior.

To the left of the kitchen and dining area, there is a spacious living room. In the upper quarters, there is a bedroom and full bathroom.

On the other end of the home, there are additional living spaces and a garage. The rooftop gradually lowers from one side of the house to the other, mimicking the shape of the hills in the valley.

The rich wood material stays consistent in the majority of the home, with hardwood floors throughout the kitchen and dining area. The paneling on the interior of the living room also is consistent with the patio area.

The overall design of the home is stunning, combining functional and necessary features with elements specific to the location of the house.

You will notice that even aside from the large patios on both sides of the kitchen space, there are plenty of large windows throughout the home. This helps maximize natural lighting, while also providing breathtaking views in each room.

Even with the magnificent interior design, this home features exceptional patio spaces on both sides of the home. The sheltered area provides an outdoor space for lounging even in variable weather.

Enjoy the rest of our gallery featuring images of this impressive home, and keep your mind open to design features that could be incorporated into your own space!

This large entrance to the home creates a welcoming atmosphere, opening directly into the kitchen and dining area. The profiled metal cladding exterior contrasts the rich wood paneling leading into the interior. Since the actual entrance to the home recedes so far into the structure, a sheltered outdoor patio is created.

From directly behind the dining table, we are allowed a view of the kitchen area and have a small glimpse of the staircase leading up into another section of the home. The rich wood texture on the island matches the floors well, while the wood paneling both inside and outside of the home compliments the rest of the space.

Inside of the living room, you can see the hallway and staircase that were featured in the image above. The living room shares a shelving unit with the kitchen, accessible from both sides. A large window to the right is consistent with the open design in the rest of the home.

This close up view of the shelving unit shows how the dishes and serving utensils can be accessible from both the living room and the kitchen. The combinations of the dark painted wood and the lighter tones is well executed.

This bathroom has a smooth transition from carpet to tile, thanks to the similarity of color. The long bath sits just beneath a window, which provides a wide view of the surrounding valley. The floating cabinets are a lighter tone of wood, which balances out the darker colors in the room.

Finally, we get a full view of the back of the home. You will notice how the exterior follows the contour of the hills and mimics the shape of the valley. Even from this distance, you can see how exposed the interior of the home is, accenting the open concept.
