Omval House is an extension project completed by Jeroen de Nijs in Alkmaar, Netherlands.

Description by Jeroen de Nijs: The surroundings of the ‘Omval’ is recognizable by the horticulture and a variety of buildings that has emerged over the centuries. It exudes a raw atmosphere, like that of an uncleared barnyard. To maintain the character of the gardener cottage there is a separate volume placed next to it. This way the small scale of the surrounding buildings is not interrupted.

The materials from adjacent barns are detailed and translated in a modern way. With the aid of a glazed corridor, the new extension is attached to the characteristic gardeners cottage. The living area has more than doubled, which allowed us to create a spacious living room and kitchen.
