House Baetens / JagerJanssen architecten - Image 19 of 19

The intersection of a planned green strip and an existing avenue provide an architectural opportunity for this a two-storey dwelling. The first floor appears to be cumbersome and heavy materialised: dark bricks with continuous seams result in an abstract rugged character. The second floor will be a wooden shaft: lighter in colour, weight and design.

Open kitchen

The cooking ilse is lit by a translucent plane. The kitchen appliciances are integrated in the adjacent wall.

Plinth, Daylightstrip and Monolith

The plinth of the building is heavy, due to it's wild bond masonry with retreating seams. A continuous daylightstrip separates the base from the monolithic trespa toploor.

Lineair staircase

House Baetens / JagerJanssen architecten - Stairs, Handrail, Windows

Perpendicular to the groundloor central axis, a lineair staircase connects to the second loor . The orientation of the top loor vestibule is crosswise, thus maximizing the spatial perception of the dwelling. Ascending the staircase, one walks towards the light.
