Attracted by the large garden and the tranquil environment of this house located a few kilometres away from Brussels, the new owners wished to carry out works to make it brighter and to open it up on the outside.
As they were ambivalent about the aesthetics of the existing house, part of the project was also to redesign the architectural expression, outside as well as inside, while keeping the original spirit. One of the childhood friends of the new owner put him in contact with architect François Martens who asked his colleague Edouard Brunet to team up with him.

Villa Muurame is a wooden 3-story single-family home by Lake Jyväsjärvi in Jyväskylä, Finland. The spatial elements of the house (approx. 3m wide, 7.8 longa and 3.1 high) were pre-fabricated during the winter in the Muurametalot housing factory in Karunki, Finnish Lapland and the elements were erected in Jyväskylä after the snow had melted. The timber used is extremely slow grown and high quality Lappish spruce and pine.

In 2014, we were required to design a villa located at Shenzhen Bay in Nanshan district, Guangdong Province, China. Client Mr. Xu is a Teochew, who is from Chaoshan Teoswa where is the linguistic and cultural region in the east of Guangdong, China that is developing into a single metropolis. As we know, most Teochew people like design in malacosoma rich, bronze color and other heavy fine wood carvings, decorated in a warm atmosphere, which might not incompatible with our philosophy. Even more, Mr. Xu had already have one design plan which was being under pre-construction. He complaint that he was not that satisfied with that previous design. At the beginning, we were worried that he might not that into our design, but he indicated ‘modern’ was actually what he was looking for.

Ani Villas, two modern luxury villas of 3,000-4,000 square feet each, reside on a 1 ½ acre plot that slopes up to a sheer, stone promontory, overlooking Little Bay to the west on Anguilla’s north coast. They include soaring indoor-outdoor living spaces with breathtaking views of the sea and the sky. Each villa has four bedrooms with a detached office/guest area, and site amenities include a tennis court, a viewing pavilion and a cliff-top pool and deck area. The white, modern structures – a series of stacked rectangular layers, forming subtly ascending levels and varying sized balconies and infilled with glass – are like a beacon atop the cliff and position themselves within the tradition of tropical modern architecture.

The house is situated in a residential allotment with “bungalow” houses from the early sixties, surrounded by dunes, not far from the Belgian seaside.
To bring the house into accordance with the surrounding houses and the enviroment and to answer to the building regulations, the design of the house was inspired by the bungalow typology. At first glance it looks like a single storey house.
