House of Alain Hubert in Rhode-St-Genèse, Belgium by Philippe Samyn and Partners

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Article source: Philippe Samyn and Partners

The Avenue Bel Horizon, typical of a number of residential districts located in the surroundings of Brussels, is bordered by houses, some isolated, some in small groups, arranged in narrow and deep plots. The one that interests us is no exception to the rule: 20 m wide along the road (to the North) and 73 m deep, with a building area limited to 11 m in width and 15 m in depth, 6 m away from the road.

House DWG in Meise, Belgium by UAU collectiv

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: UAU collectiv

A landscape fit for daydreaming provides the incentive to design a building with a serene impression. Unity in form and materialisation are characteristic for the basic volume that is designed over 2 levels by means of cuboid shaped volumes. Different integrated patios search for a contact between interior and exterior. Further, the ground floor volume is conceived more largely and shifted in relation to the upper floor in order to create an interesting outdoor area, awnings and terraces. The house has a strong horizontal appearance because of the play of meeting points between “floating” volumes and walls that are continued from inside to outside.

Negenoord is a former gravel extraction area (about 150ha), which is now transformed to a nature reserve called Maasvalley Riverpark, 2500 hectares in size and located on both sides of the Belgium-Netherlands border which is formed by the Maas river.

Óscar Romerocollege in Dendermonde, Belgium by De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

The south side of the Óscar Romerocollege borders on the historical inner city of Dendermonde. The patchwork sequence of courtyards and streets is typical of this location. Two college buildings have already been built. A further two buildings – a tuition building and a sports complex – will be added and are intended to strengthen the school’s identity. We have extended this objective to include a connection to the historic centre. A connection that has been created by blending into the structure of the public spaces. The existing courtyards have been extended to include two new courtyards and a promenade. The four school buildings, each of which has its own individual appearance, create a powerful rhythm on the north side. This is where the main entrance is located. A covered path connects the existing and new buildings and takes the students past the different courtyards, each of which has its own function and identity.

The Cervantes Institute in Brussels, Belgium by Carlos Arroyo Architects

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Carlos Arroyo Architects

Compact and Flexible

One of the major challenges of the project was to combine at the ground floor level the required flexibility for a multifunctional and public space, and allowing at the same time the possibility to locate 30.000 books of the library. The system proposed to solve this issue was a three-dimensional version of the Cervantes Institute Logo. Orthogal geometries created by thick red lines which limit undefined spaces. One can move between this lines full of books and spend some time sitting on the benches located on the hallways or going out to wider spaces to enjoy the lecture at the café. The books work also as a storefront background. The activities allocated in this floor are visible from the street as a way to highlight its public essence. A domestic library, a coffee hall, a multifunctional space with stands or the information displayed on the monitors.

PO87 in Belgium by AWAA

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: AWAA

This private commission for a single family home is located in a wooded residential area in Belgium. The house is a response to strict legislations on implantation and surface occupancy, as well as a municipality desire to promote housing in the neighborhood.

During the development, we proposed to the promoter an added value: a construction that would be energetically addressed, according to the passive house standards.
