Balanced combination

Declerck-Daels, Architecten as Architects

An extension of 6m², one additional window, subtle interventions and a well considered choice of materials … those are the ingredients to turn an introvert and impractical house into an open and cosy home.

 

The sliding window barely gave view to the garden and the living rooms were unusable due to beams, pillars and dark corners.

The living room became sober and clear by transforming it into one open room with a cosy tv corner, dining room, office table and kitchen.

The furniture and the materials connect the spaces.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are optimised and additional insulation increases the comfort.

 

The balanced combination of wood, concrete, white and black colours makes it cosy.  

Optimize the available space, and add spatiality and experience.  Do a lot more with minus!

 

That concept was also applied to the outside, to result in a perfect symbiosis of architecture, interior and landscape.
