Located just outside the town of Ghent, House VDV is a single family house rebuilt on the site where a castle destroyed in WWII.
Retained the historical wall, covered with copper from the facades to the roof, connected by big floor glass walls, the house is conceived as a pavilion.
Inspiration from architect:
House VDV appears simultaneously familiar and strange. The volume, consisting of one level with a pitched roof, alludes to familiar archetypes such as the rural homestead or barn. But at the same time the volume is broken up by large glass facades, so that the relationship is established with the surrounding trees and the listed castle wall.
