Two inconspicuous village houses in Knokke were completely renovated from the inside. A new extension was added on the back side. the ground level of the garden and living space was lowered significantly in order to create higher ceilings and better light admittance in the house. On the roof of the garage building a swimming pool, invisible from below, adds a holiday feeling to the house. Simple but warm materials such as wood, concrete with plank structure and natural stone are used to create a timeless and spatial experience.
