Design for a suburban villa in Flanders (BE)


Design for a suburban villa in Flanders (BE)

This private home in Flanders, currently under construction, is an excellent case on contemporary suburban living and building. It’s unique use of materials makes the house stand out in this village neighborhood context. This unique character is not for excess. To the contrary, the texture and horizontal rows of the concrete façade refer to the brick work common in Flanders, and the everyday routines and functions of the homeowners are finely tuned and specialized. The cast in place concrete formwork is treated with exceptional care and detail. The eccentricity between the two floor plans creates fluid living spaces and large covered terraces on the ground level, while the upper level more rationally demarcates efficient living quarters, bathrooms, and storage closets.
