Open ground floor area
This unique family retreat was created near the Belgian coast, not far from the French border, and stands out for its distinctive architectural structure and choice of materials. The location was chosen to resemble a dune-like environment, where the villa initially appears isolated and deserted. However, the numerous trees and bushes create a familiar setting and harmonize with nature.
The architect's special challenge was to create an accessible living space despite the significant slope. There is a height difference of about two meters between the front and back of the building. From this difficulty, an aesthetic masterpiece emerged. The floating living area, including a spacious terrace on the south side, emphasizes the uniqueness of the property and conveys the exclusivity and sophistication of the overall concept. Thanks to a basement level, the Villa Glasscube remains balanced.
- Minimalist forms
The edges of the bungalow were prefabricated, while the liquid concrete was poured on-site. This resulted in a structure with abstract strength that radiates warmth and coziness. The house door and garage, made of sustainable wood, adorn part of the facade on the northern side. The concrete sunroof provides privacy and gives the building a stylish overall appearance.
- House full of glass surfaces
The north and south sides of the property were designed as full-glass facades, extending the entire length of the building. The delicate design sliding windows and doors from minimal windows® create a wonderful contrast to the original concrete structure. The large glass fronts allow for a magnificent and barrier-free view of the dune landscape, filling the rooms with pleasantly bright light. They give the property an extremely exclusive design that exudes elegance and fascination.
