Politiecommissariaat Brugge in Belgium by Beel & Achtergael Architecten

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: Beel & Achtergael Architecten

The relocation of the police station to the edge of the city will give a strong impulse to the future development of the harbour site. The judicious positioning and dimensioning of its compact, floating office volume ensures that it fits in with the structure and scale of the former harbour area.

Kempart Loft in Liège, Belgium by Dethier Architectures

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Article source: Dethier Architectures

Reinterpreting the loft
The Kempart loft project emerged from a meeting between Daniel Dethier and a client, who was passionate about precision engineering. It demonstrates how industrial spaces can be transformed into housing without becoming locked into stereotypes.

Detail and accuracy
We were fortunate to have a committed and receptive client who was fascinated by precision engineering. This allowed us to apply our research into a loft’s reinterpretation, and to integrate a technically advanced architectural object. Our approach was, quite naturally, based on the client’s profile rather than the site’s historical nature – as it does not present any heritage value whatever.

Campanules House in City of Brussels, Belgium by EXAR Architecture

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Article source: EXAR Architecture

The previous house offered tiny opening to the garden. The “back” rooms, kitchen, bathroom, previously considered as services, blocked the views from the house to the nice garden. We decided to keep these functions but to open them widely, by creating large windows. The kitchen – dining room offers an large open view to the vegetation. The bathroom has focused view to the trees.

Article source: BURO II + ARCHI+I

Due to the increasing number of students, the local Oostduinkerke school needed to expand. The building premises are situated in the centre of town, in between the backyards of the surrounding buildings. The newly constructed nursery section will be partly underground. This way, the new building creates a number of benefi ts: A scenic integration with the build-up environment and a spacious outside play area for the children. All classes walk out into a wind-free covered class garden that serves as a safe outside area.

Office AST 77 + Apartment in Tienen, Belgium by AST 77

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Article source: AST 77

Back in 2006, architect engineer Peter Van Impe  was searching for a place to accomodate his newly founded architects and engineers office, AST 77 architects and engineers office. He stumbled upon a post-war townhouse located at the edge of the city park of Tienen. After some research this lot, of just 60 square meters, turned out to be suited for construction. Although others never considered this small piece of land to be a usable building lot, Peter transformed it into a spacious house/office by upholding the less is more principle.

Low Energy Timber House in Tielt-Winge, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

Concept and Vision

Peter Van Impe, the architect of this modern/contemporary private residence was faced with a challenge. The daughter of a besides lying ancestral home dating from the 60’s, wanted to built a residence for herself and her three sons. Building regulations dictated a minimum of 3 meters distance from the property boundary on the west side, while on the east side the house would have to be linked to the adjacent parental home in the future. The (basic) concept consists of an elongated rectangular volume that is enveloped by an L-shaped volume. The rectangular volume encloses all communal spaces of the house, such as the living room, kitchen and lounge area, where large windows provide the room with plenty of natural light. The L-shaped volume in grey contains the bathrooms and bedrooms. The four individual bedrooms are conceived as little cocoons that open onto the living room.
