Claerhout - Van Biervliet

house in the woods

This house is situated in a forest. This brings on a challenge of light. Even though trees are amazing to live between, it can be dark at certain moments. This is why we elevated the living areas of the house to the upper floor and the sleeping areas are kept on ground level. There is a contrast between the geometric base shape of the house and the surrounding organically curved terraces that float between the crowns of the trees. The contrast is also present in the materials of red copper with patina and concrete with wood plank texture.
