The garden chamber:A wooden skeleton covered with polycarbonate slates defines the image of a garden chamber.This results in a “patio-feeling” which rises out of this typically Belgian courtyard. The wooden skeleton draws different lines on the slates during daytime.This gives the garden chamber a variety of sights every moment of the day. Solid and fragile.The room shines.Inside it is a cool area during the hot summer, while it gives a pleasing ‘hothouse’ feeling during wintertime.The courtyard itselfs has a fresh coolness, by pulling open the angles.All four rhumbs play with the perspectives from inside to outside.

The barn: The monumentality of the old barn is totally preserved. It’s not just restoration, it’s reorientation. Inside the walls are whitewashed like a bleached sheet of stones.Sauna, shower and toilet are somehow hidden in the double- heigh space. Windows pull the courtyard inside out.The stove reach high as an exclamation mark.Here is fire. In the small extension there is a deep pool.Water, filtered by lava and plants, reflecting the outside on the inside.An energetic bath. The eclectic feeling of different houses.Old and new.The photosynthesis of the Belgian rural feeling.
