Sea Side Appartement in Knokke-Heist, Belgium by OOZE

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Article source: OOZE

Knokke-Heist is a mythical “cité balnéaire” in Belgium. The apartment lies on the 2nd floor with a view over the Rubensplein.

Despite its generous size, the typology of the flat is very long and narrow which makes the current layout very inefficient with regard to corridors and effective living spaces. A clear reorganization of the internal partitions and bathroom layouts enables us to develop a new specific concept not only for the space and the materials, but also for the display of the client art collection, a mini “personal museum” A frame to look out at the ocean and towards the beach in the daytime, the apartment becomes a glowing space to look into at night time.

A seemingly adhoc collection of raw, workmanlike materials wrapped around an unassuming two-story clapboard bungalow, Frank Gehry’s, FAIA, home for his wife, Berta, and two sons found a literal, but unexpected, answer to the question of neighborhood context, and used it to forever re-shape the formal and material boundaries of architecture.
