House in Overijse, Belgien
The architects have built a house for themselves on a wooded slope in the small Flemish town of Overijse, south-east of Brussels. The simple, cubic structure has a façade made up of a large number of equal fields with fixed glazing and wood veneer panels with built-in opening leaves. Access is from above, to the closed narrow side of the building. A walkway links the path with the façade, which is set a little back from the slope. Visitors come to a double-walled, industrial-type folding steel door with three leaves. The right-hanad leaf in the bridge area serves as the front door. If all the leaves are opened, the entrance area on the upper floor is transformed into an inviting loggia.
