This is the second new house commission of Philippe Samyn, build for young friends in a wood.
The dream of the clients for large spaces is difficult to achieve within the limited budget.
The sloping woody site inspires the restrained composition based on split levels.
The living area acts as main junction space between the half lower level (with the main entrance, the garage, the cellars and the guest room) and the half upper level (with the parents and the children sleeping and bath rooms).
Regularily spaced brick bearing walls support thin concrete floors and wooden roof beams.
The window frames are flush with the facade brick veneer to accentuate the simplicity of the build volume.
