Second Life Houses Villa Utrecht

During the 19th and early 20th century in the Netherlands and Germany, home builders often made country houses in the neoclassical style. Built over 2 years, Dutchie’s premiere Second Life house: Villa Utrecht, has a foundation laid around 1850.

Age and many owners brought changes over the years, to both exterior and interior. But the villa kept its beauty and grandeur. Its most remarkable feature is the facade with the large steps and many hatches facing the street side. These characteristics are a display of status and wealth to anyone who was passing by.

In advance of the upcoming Home & Garden Expo, this episode we visit a new house designed and furnished by Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie, who is one of Second Life’s leading designers. Built in a traditional Dutch style, the house is impressive for Froukje’s attention to detail and the inclusion of many diverse animations in the furniture. We discuss the project with Froukje in depth and tour the house looking at the many points of interest, while additional inserts hint at just some of the possibilities offered by the house and its contents.
