From the architect. Since the project is built on a marvelous spot in the Belgium woods and in a hilly country as ‘Vlaams Brabrant’, it requires an unpretentious architecture. The architecture must merge into the landscape.

This house is no typical Flemish house, but an oblong living-object, transversely placed on the contour of the hill, taking over the form of the slope. No bricks were used for this house, but rather a camouflaging green skin of plants and sedum, providing the ultimate integration of house and nature.

Interesting use of exterior clad materials. Love the idea of the profile morphing with the terrain of the site. Almost gives it a life-like organic appeal! Thanks for the architecture inspiration. :)
