A radical horizontal volume in the woods around Bruges. In its longness it is already very special. The use of materials like wood and concrete and glass makes it very tactile. On one lenght side the house is almost fully covered with wood. Only one window opens it up. All other sides are in full height glass panels. All these features are a concequence of the long , quite narrow terrain that is surrounded by trees. Main purpose was to get light in and reflect it. In the first section of the house, there is only the ground floor containing kitchen and living space. The absolute cunningness starts in the second section. There, a split level has been created without abandoning the initial height above ground of 4 metres. The architects just went underground. Above the kids' rooms, bathroom and office. Underground is the master bedroom with bathroom and tv room. Thanks to the overall high windows and the void created underground, light is in abundance pulled into the house. 'Piece de resistance' is the 'underground' open swimming pool that 'touches' the master bed- and bathroom.
