For the construction of this free-standing home on the edge of the Buggenhout wood, quality was sought in the volumes, which had been built alongside each other over the years.
Although the end result does not suggest this, a large part of the original was preserved. Only the sequence of cluttered rooms was skilfully opened up to create the openness that prevails.
The whole was wrapped and an insulating layer was plastered in three shades.
It looks like a new-build, but could never have been a new-build.
