Glass And Concrete Pool House by Lieven Dejaeghere

Glass And Concrete Pool House In Belgium (1)

Lieven Dejaeghere architect has designed a concrete and glass pool house, a pavilion connected to a rural residence.

Description by Lieven Dejaeghere: The house is situated in Wannegem-Lede, Belgium, a very nice and cosy village at the entrance of the Flemish Ardennes, the scenery of the Tour of Flanders-cycling race. Its concerns an annex to an existing permanent residence, that serves a pool house, bar, home cinema and summer living room at the same time.

This project consisted in creating a pool house design that embraces the rural environment and furthermore includes the existing house from 1998 in its entirety. The pavilion, which was connected to the residence by using a glass footbridge, is completely enveloped in glass. The roof, in exposed concrete, contrasts with the fragility of the glass. The roof was cast on site with the aid of sight formwork and it is supported by steel fins.

The transparent extension restructures the existing house and defines an inner area with the quality and characteristics of a farmstead and focuses on the garden, as well as the inner area and the surrounding landscape. The residence to expand has a specific architecture with a saddle roof. The extension separates itself as much as possible from the existing volume, and contrasts in simplicity and light structure.

The pool was already there. The transparent extension restructures the existing house and defines an inner area with the quality and characteristics of a farmstead and focuses on the garden, as well as the inner area and the surrounding landscape. The concrete roofing sheet was in situ disposed by using formwork. It is supported by steel fins. To achieve the required insulation values, the concrete awning is thermal unlinked.

The awning is anchored in the roofing sheet wit the aid of an insulated connection. The roof is insulated at her top. Likewise for thermal reasons the floor plate is deduplicated. The full height sliding doors have been manufactured thanks to a minimal window frame system of only 20 mm wide, with sliding pieces rolling on multiple small bearings. On top of that, the whole construction remains thermically very high performing.
