Villa Roces is integrated in an oblong terrain of about 70m long and 30m wide, situated in the forest surroundings of Bruges.  The concept consists of a 50 m long and a 4.20 m high wooden wall flanking 6 m wide glass box is disposed.

The house is built along a wall with the intention to meet the lack of light and reflect the presence of the forest, the verticality of the trees, etc. The 54m long wall functions as a background for the transparant volume in front. The wall is not only visible at the outside, but also continuously visible at the inside.

Dunkirk Arts Quarter in France by Francois Blanciak Architect

Article source: Francois Blanciak Architect

The project proposes a unique fusion between architecture and urbanism, within which a building becomes a neighborhood by eroding itself into an array of particles. Thus, it establishes an inverted poetical relation with the particles that emanate from the industrial chimneys of the port of Dunkirk, France. In terms of program, the project includes a theater, numerous workshops, exhibition and administrative spaces within its most vertical part, followed by artist residencies, student housing, as well as regular urban blocks with semi-private gardens.

The Golf’s Tower provides “Panorama Apartments” which embraces the view over the Lima Golf Club. The graded rooms and the multiple ways to open and enclose them allow the users to individual configure the inside-out relations.

The apartment unfolds towards the context through the plan that turns from an enclosed sequence of spaces at the south side to an open plan towards the north side. The main rooms like the living room, dinning room and master bedroom are situated at the façade, while the TV-room, study, kitchen and master bathroom are connected to these main rooms. Living, TV room, dinning, kitchen and master bedroom can be combined to one continuous space along the facade to maximize the experience of the “Panorama Apartment”.
