Transformation and extension of a single-family dwelling
Location : Wezembeek-Oppem
Programme : Transformation and extension of a wood-frame dwelling.

The project consists of a wood-frame extension for a couple with 3 children. The existing house, too small to accommodate a growing family, is transformed and almost doubled. The interior organization is modified: the 'night' areas are on the garden level and the 'day' areas are upstairs. The bathroom and the kitchen are kept in the existing house to make the most of the connections already present. The intermediate space between the two units, the old and the new, accommodates the hall and the staircase that leads to the living floor. The link between these two units is reinforced by a double-height
wooden volume that starts on the roof of the old house and culminates with a cantilevered terrace on the garden.
