After more than forty years, the dated 70s home of our clients needed renewal.
Their wish was to give the house a powerful personal face and to convert it into a modern villa. We made the design for a complete metamorphosis of the entire house. Because the layout in the base was largely good, almost no major interventions had to be made on the main support construction. We did draw the expansion of the (living) kitchen where we used a lot of glass and there was an open view of the garden. This has made the garden an extension of the house. In addition, the house is experienced more spacious by this intervention.


The facades were insulated on the outside and finished with white stucco. The new window frames were made in anthracite-colored aluminum. The roof was half removed and bricked up on the existing walls, resulting in a full space in the attic. The tile roof was replaced with zinc. By covering the garage with sustainable wood, the house has a modern and warm atmosphere.


In addition to the architectural design, where we also created a covered terrace, we created a furnishing and lighting plan for, among other things, the kitchen.
