The narrow sloping and afforested site, south faced towards the Beukenlaan, is not that typical Flanders plot. In the past the neighbourhood seems to have been a residential recreation zone, where Belgians used to build their individual summer houses. When asked to build a new spacious residence on this particular site, AST77 was confronted with a bungalow and extension.

It is the corner lot of the hill which the house of the low-rise building ranges in the site, and people opened.
By the first meeting, I thought that the soft space of one big connection was good while being effective conducting wire.

650㎡ grass land with moving site of Mt.Fuji and Enoshima.
We thought of using up the grass land for a place to stay by studding 22 huts. Architecture which people can get in and those which people cannot get in are treated the same.
A plan is called a map and by using this place the map is updated overtime.

The site is situated right next to the Medina and in consequence interwoven with the indispensable social and economic structures of the Old City.
Both legal and illegal markets dominate the streetscape and are vital to the local economy. The downside of this density of commercial street business is the pollution and the decay of the public space. The design will have to serve as an example on how to improve the practical aspects of the market but leaving the existing social economic structures intact.
