WALL HOUSE in Near Brussels, Belgium by AND’ROL architecture

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Article source: AND’ROL architecture

DESCRIPTION by the architects

The plot’s particularities are on the one hand its perturbing position close to a steep rock slope, and on the other hand its small depth and its unusual longitudinal orientation parallel to the street.

Starting point for the young Belgian architects were traces of a nearby former stronghold. The main design element consists of an enclosing wall with a recessed rising part, to which the modest and sober main house nestles and adapts. A second shallow volume that houses a large number of storage spaces is also located behind the wall.

Article source: Adia

Affordable, elegant, eco-friendly homes delivered internationally—any size, any style, anywhere in the world.

Lack of affordable housing is a serious problem around the world, and it’s been Adia’s focus for almost a decade now. When our “$12,000 Green Dream Home” (MCDhouse) made international news in 2009, floods of emails came in from across the globe. It seemed to give people hope. It made young people who can barely afford to rent leap at the thought of owning their own home. It made families with children dream of healthy, all natural housing. It delighted the elderly looking for small elegant homes to down-size into in retirement. It perked political interest on multiple continents. An ultra-affordable, eco-friendly house seemed to strike a chord in everyone.
