Belgian architectural firm Bureau 2G has developed a new private property in Feluy, Belgium.
This 2,368 square foot contemporary house boasts a low energy design and style with emphasis on advertising a comfortable interior flow.
New Private House in Feluy by Bureau 2G:
– New low power single family house for 2 adults and 2 kids.
– Surface : 2,368 square feet
- Power Efficiency: K35 – Ew 56
– labeled CALE
The desire was to generate a property where the high quality, organization and functionality of the space maximised the effectively getting of the inhabitants. Careful consideration was provided to the comfort level of such a low power house. It was also important for the design to establish a permanent relationship with the outdoors environment.
Integration to the website was made firstly by implementation of the creating and its side access, which on the one particular hand, preserved the existing slope and on the other hand permitted the addition of volumes to the existing building on the right. The volume’s flat roof was also a contributing element.
The selection of a dark brick in 2 tones (really dark brown for the brick and grey for the zinc, blue stone, window frames) permitted for the harmonious integration with the surrounding landscape. Urban planning constraints contributed to the overall aesthetics of the creating. The impossibility for a flat roof on the principal volume is why the zinc roof was built to slope.
Due to its low power design and style, interior temperature remains constant thanks to double flow ventilation and is also what permitted the interconnection of the internal volumes. The living spaces, which serve as heat retainers, are separated from the mezzanine with a wall. Excess heat is in a position to diffuse upward by means of open space.
Interior areas and volumes of diverse heights also enable for much more ventilation and an enhanced sense of space.
The home’s extension was built with equal consideration for the current interior as properly as the exterior internet site and landscape.
The goal was achieved, in that the architectural research and style enabled the suitable inhabitation of harmonious and functional spaces of superior quality. In addition, the energy needs had been perfectly met and preparing constraints have been creatively adapted.”
