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 Delta house is situated on a seemingly lost and unusual triangular lot in Tielt but it is actually very well-oriented from a commercial point of view. It faces a busy crossroads and thanks to a green area, dominated by a beautiful, solitary oak tree there is enough breathing space to regard the project in its entirety.
This old clay timbered house is located in rural Heers, Belgium. The house was completed renovated by Brussels-based Burobill studio.
The environmental footprint of the Square house is very small. The structure is made of a wooden frame and cellulose insulation, which minimizes the CO2 emission of the construction. The materials used are largely natural.
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.
