House with office Sint-Katelijne-Waver

Art pavilion with patio
Typical are the elongated canopies, imposing glass facades and natural stone walls surrounding an outdoor room with a reflecting water feature. As you approach the site, the villa only gradually reveals itself. At the entrance, a long wall in dark gray cleaved stone largely screens the building. A similar wall then guides you back toward the entrance. It is only when you take a few steps in that direction that you become amazed by the architecture characterized by large glass facades, long overhangs and earthy colors.

Circulation as a gallery
Ample office space and a pool with a bar: those things definitely needed to be there. Moreover, the art collection had to be given a prominent place. The backbone of the house is formed by a central axis of circulation that cuts across the building. From the front door you look in a straight line into the garden. Along that line of sight, all residential and commercial functions are organized. Spaces with a more closed character such as bedrooms, bathrooms and office spaces are oriented to the north side. The living area, kitchen and a meeting room open up to the terrace, which is conceived as a full-fledged outdoor space. In addition, the axis serves as an art gallery.

Secure central patio
The roof flows into large overhangs that seem to float over the interior and exterior spaces and long natural stone walls. Not only do those canopies anchor the living spaces in the environment, they also reinforce the idea of an outdoor room. A concept reinforced by gigantic window sections with maximally concealed window profiles. Moreover, the natural stone used to clad the facades simply continues in the floors, both inside and outside. By conceiving the terrace and pool area as part of the house, we create a widening effect. In doing so, the detached walls and pool house make a protective movement around the central patio.
