Renovation of a forge to single family home with guest room, studio and gardens. On a unique location in the city of Ghent a single-family is realized within the walls of an old industrial building. The old brick forge and carpentry became the scene for the house as scaled room. Some shed roofs are retained, others are removed. Similarly, pieces of the concrete flooring are retained or removed. The house, a wood and steel framing with rational structure and readable use of material, cuts the plot in half. The result is a south facing, bar shaped volume which absorbs the confrontation between two complementary outdoor spaces: the walled garden and the workshop. If one goes through the gate, one enters a first room, a workshop space covered with the original shed roof.

The second outdoor space is formed by an enclosed rear garden, bounded by a space under a maintained shed roof. This space looks back at the house. The feeling, of the room as a shed without a roof, is made permanent at any point of the plot.

The construction of the house remains visible, slender white columns bear the open wooden scheduling. The cladding consists of untreated shingles. If they are wet, they become dark and get a varied and almost velvety appearance. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe ground floor is characterized by the materialization of some specific and unique fixed furniture:

- The kitchen, made of green plywood, brass and green concrete
- The fireplace, a central and naked space separating element
- The entrance container, finished with polish pine plywood
- The stairs, at the same time the library, made of dark-stained oak veneer plywood and black HPL.

A sustainable project is realized by the conscious choice for a compact air-conditioned volume, well-insulated walls, triple glazing, balance ventilation and louvers on the south side to counteract extreme solar heating.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessPraça Municipal 47 Building / Arquitetura NacionalSelected ProjectsHouse in Funabashi / Koji Hatano ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projectscenter_img “COPY” “COPY” Year:  Belgium Houses 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Year: last_img read more

Quirky listings: A farm in Idlicote, Warwickshire for sale at £1.35million

There is an enclosed garden and a yard area with a Dutch barn converted to create five stables, tack room/workshop, a storage building and WC.The property runs to 3.4 acres, of which approximately 3 acres are the paddock of well-established grassland.Ben Way, at Butler Sherborn’s Stow-on-the-Wold office, “The Old Farmhouse is situated close to the unspoilt and idyllic hamlet of Idlicote and within some of Warwickshire’s prettiest countryside. It is well located to all main communication links including the M40 motorway just 9 miles for good access to Oxford, the Midlands and London, Birmingham International Airport and railway network.” Sadly, the camels and pigs are also moving on.
