Forum City regularly pleases its readers with descriptions of unusual interiors, and this time we will talk about a building that has the most unusual appearance. It is located in Belgium, on the site of a castle destroyed during the Second World War. The remains of its walls are skillfully used in the creation of the surrounding landscape, and its architects took them as a starting point for their thoughts.
An unusual house remotely reminds one of a barn or a farmer's house, but its huge glass facades rather sound in tune with associations with a winter garden. The transparency of the window constructions is interestingly combined with slabs of unworked copper, which decorate the roof and walls. The solution is bold and eye-catching.
The minimalist furnishings on the inside are striking in their opulence and restraint. The interior was designed for active, strong people, who would rest in this house with comfort and feel not just cozy, but also respectable. Marble surfaces and high-tech plastic, glass and treated wood – each room is able to surprise with its unexpected combinations of materials, outlines and compositions.
Unexpected touches – asymmetric black slab at the entrance, imitating the shadow of the door, beveled ceiling, massive bathroom, wall decoration – all designed to enhance the effect of style, not burdening the house with unnecessary things. Huge clear stained glass windows let in lots of daylight, and at night give a sense of open, bold space.
