The task involves building a spacious family home in rural Affligem, near Brussels. The area with a width of 25 m has a significant height, rising to the rear of the plot.

The topography of the land is respected and this creates subtly different relationships between indoor and outdoor space. The upper floor has been implanted in a way that the insolation is not hindered, the entrance is provided with an impressive cantilever and all rooms enjoy a splendid view of the landscaped garden.Save this picture!© Cafeine © Thomas De BruyneThe contract was extended with a design for the garden paving and a pool house, which is in harmony with the landscaping and the pool to create an oasis of peace.
