Founded in 2013 by Jan Nauta, Studio Nauta has completed a number of projects that are conducive to modern life, paying close attention to light, movement and function, with the House in the Woods (pictured) in Middelburg being a prime example. Old and new buildings are neatly juxtaposed within a forest setting, creating a seamless relationship between inside and outside. studionauta.org
