This house in Belgium is built on a challenging site where the architects in Dierendonck Blancke Architecten were forced to think up rather than left and right – it is a sort of infill-project. The project was completed in 2010, and the result was a functional home on approximately 100 square metres.
The vertical circulation is a staircase placed in the centre of the house connecting three main storeys and a total of six “levels”. The staircase is also working as a lightwell where daylight coming in through a large window in the ceiling is allowed to penetrate deep into the house. The interior is very easy going, and in terms of materials the architects used painted brick in the longitudinal walls which forms the house, while the exterior and interior walls, as well as the room dividing transverse walls inside the house are erected in concrete blocks.
