Commissioned project.
Renovation and extension of single family house.
Client: private
Total floor area: 296 sqm.
Budget: € 240.000.
Location: Balen, Belgium.
Design and realisation: 2010-2013.

The house in Balen is a reconstruction and extension project of an existing small house, too little for its growing family.
The concept is based on a duplication of the volume with an amputated portion of pinched roof in order to offer additional light to the centre of the house, otherwise too dark. The lifted roof gives a generous spatial quality to the rooms located under this roof.
