Situated on the far end of a driveway and in close proximity to railway tracks, the renovation of this grindstone home had two objectives: make the living areas feel spacious and conceal commuter sights and sounds as much as possible.
Bamboo shoots around the new patio makes the yard feel calm and seculded. Wienerberger bricks were installed on the exterior wall to complement the existing facade. Double-pitched zinc was used to cover the unusual shape of the roof.
When the family wants to eat meals inside, they can sit around the dining table on Eames chairs.
Velux skylights open the extension further. A wood stove by Max Blanks warms the area between the living room and kitchen when the sun is hidden.
The kitchen features countertops from Pierre Bleue de Hainaut.
Carocim tiles and custom wood cupboards add lively details to the kitchen’s contained space.
The more subdued parquet flooring from Emois et Bois spreads across the dining and living rooms.
A dining set by Fermob, featuring Luxembourg chairs, makes alfresco meals easy.
