JOSA House Extension – Modern Belgium Home

The project concerns the total renovation & extension of a terraced house in Sint-Amandsberg.

In the first phase we renovated the roof floor into an open living and sleeping loft. Subsequently, the ground floor of the house is to be renovated and extended. One new facade that forms and folds to the program & neighbors defines the new volume. The result is worth it!

THE COMMON WALL

The outdated rear buildings will be demolished and replaced by one compact, double-height extension. This takes shape by following the existing high common walls. Thus, this extension fits perfectly into its context & the construction of the new space is limited to the construction of one new rear façade with a new roof.

A new staircase section to the second floor starts in this space, creating additional space in the center of the house for a spacious (bicycle) storage room. Both the intervention and the new plan are simple, yet the concept completely transformed the narrow row house spatially.

OBJECT FURNITURE

The program for the roof floor was quite extensive: a bathroom with shower + toilet + sink, a bedroom, spacious dressing room and a TV cabinet.

The spatial qualities of the roof floor are its openness, great height and roof shape. To preserve this, we propose to place one piece of furniture in the center of the space that contains all the fixed functions. This furniture is 150cm high so you can see over it.
The dressing room and the parapet of the stairwell are both conceived as a budget-friendly and lightweight steel structure. The clothes that remain in view are a nice mood creator, and provide pleasant room acoustics.
