Text description provided by the architects. Context
A small office building on the banks of a river in rural Belgium, situated between a residential cluster and a protected natural landscape.
The building attempts to grow and unfold into its natural surroundings, and in doing so, transitions from residential street to office building to natural landscape.
The steel structure allows the building to float above the landscape, resulting in a subtle, yet confident, presence amongst its surroundings.
