DS House in Brussels, Belgium by DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u. 

Although we now think spontaneously of symmetry as being the perfect replication of two sides around a central axis, originally, to cite Vitruvius, “symmetry is a proper agreement between the members of the work itself and relation between the different parts and the whole general scheme”. There is no mention of bilateral symmetry. In Greek, summetria quite simply means “proportion” or “measure”. But since ancient times, sensible to balance and stability, mankind has built edifices that adopt the rules of bilateral symmetry: pyramids, temples, cathedrals, etc., along with vases, bifaces and steles. Yet too perfect symmetry induces boredom. Emotion leaps out from imperfections, the unforeseen and discrepancies.

Terraced-House Renovation in Schaerbeek, Belgium by Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Article source: Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement.

Vives university college – campus Bruges in Belgium by SAR architecten

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

Article source: SAR architecten

In the Middle Ages, Bruges had two big ambitions: to have a sea port and a university, fine ambitions that the magnificent old city could barely realize despite its many efforts. During history Antwerp and Ghent took over the leading roles in those matters and Bruges became during three centuries ‘Bruges la morte’. However at the end of the 20th century Bruges is the 3rd seaport of the BENELUX, and in 2009 the VIVES University College was built, associated to the well known ‘University of Louvain’.
