House in Burst, Belgium by De Smet Vermeulen architecten

The house stands along a country road between two parish churches on a large stretch of land sloping down toward the street. What should a country house look like today – the question was immanent.

One would expect a small cottage parallel to the road with a barn behind it. We wanted something just as proper. The lofty barn and the cottage with its dormer windows grew into one volume.

The skin reveals these transformations. The smaller rooms along the street façade communicate with the living rooms sitting higher on the slope. Together they constitute both a split-level house with interconnected rooms
and a sequence of separate atmospheres.

Abstraction is muted by equivoca reminiscences. The combination of rustic and bourgeois imagery in the interiors projects an openness to different views. Airtight, energy efficient, robust and made of renewable resources the house was built to last.
