In Limburg, a former military terrain has been transformed into a residential park area. This green space houses 43 spacious plots nestled in a wooded environment while preserving the existing road network and green structure as much as possible.
In this case, the apartment is in a Plattenbau, on the 4th floor of the building and at the end of the bloc, offering the condition of having three facades and three orientations, west, east and south.
A good design, respecting logic of location and orientation, can even be very simple. This light-footed ville proves that such honest architecture without bells or whistles, can nevertheless result in beautiful projects.
When Toon and Ina bought a monumental building in the center of Ghent, they were faced with a complex renovation project. The assignment: to make one contemporary family home from two connected historic buildings.
House DeDe was a project for a private client who had intentionally bought a piece of land with limited building potential. They wanted to protect the existing nature on the land and enable the family’s children to feel a bond with it.
Villa HJ sits amid lush greenery in a rural area of reclaimed land close to the famous North Holland dunes. Given the setting, an objective to create a seamless overlap between indoor spaces and the surrounding countryside seemed fitting.
Situated among vast fields and quiet sheep herds in Belgium, a heritage structure has been restored into a newly opened B&B. ’ The Bunkers ’ as the property is aptly named, was originally built in concrete on the brink of 1st world war.
When Stijn and Annemie bought the listed school façade (anno 1908) with the vacant piece of land behind, they were already the fourth owners in a row. The other buyers hadn't found a proper solution to build a contemporary house behind this facade.
The project brings together a walled courtyard and a swimming pool. The living area is a glass box contained within a concrete garden pavilion. By making the poolhouse entirely out of glass, with minimal framed windows, both inside and outside seems to disappear. Natural light is entering the pavilion by creating enclosed gardens.
In the North of Amsterdam an decayed and old brick house has been replaced by a complete new and sustainable house with timber cladding on the walls and roof. The old house was very limited in gross area and volume.
