House V at R, Belgium Farm Conversion


The farm used to consist of several buildings clustered around a residential section. Most farms in the area consist of two parallel or perpendicular volumes. The new home was embedded parallel to the barn. Positioning the home in an L-shape opposite the barn defines the residential section and strengthens the character of the space.

DM Residence in Keerbergen, Belgium

Design: CUBYC architects bvba

With this house, the architects tried to create a residence by a continuous play of coupled volumes, all interacting with each other. All living areas are connected visually with each other and with the wooded area, but you have to find out these connections in phases. Each room has its own perspective, and doors and window frames are as minimal as possible.
