L-Shaped House in Belgium by Cocoon Architecten

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Cocoon Architecten

This house for a small family is located in a residential area in Belgium.  In this first stage, the client asked for a small house with a high level of detail.  After some time, the house will be enlarged by adding some additional volumes to accommodate their future needs. Because of the shape and location of the land, three important points were to be considered when designing the house.

L-Shaped House

  • Architects: Cocoon Architecten
  • Project: L-Shaped House
  • Location: Belgium
  • Software used: Generally using Autodesk Autocad 2012 and Revit 2012, combined with 3DStudio Design 2012 and Sketchup in the office. For this project Autocad seemed the best choice due to the small size of the project and difficulty of the details.  In Revit it would have been much more time consuming.

A gracious volume set alongside the Nile – a striking addition to the city skyline – this elegant 70-storey structure seems to rotate, to lean across the water on its west side – this sense of movement further enhanced by strong diagonals and the continuous glass plaza at its foot.
