51N4E architects, converted and old shop into a contemporary weekend home in the old centre of Bruges in Belgium! The facade and the assets of the old house were kept intact. In the back, the architects designed a wooden organic room. The double- height space is entirely covered in timber planks, start of as an arch which gradually lifts asymmetrically towards the back, framing the tall trees of a the neighboors garden.
Interesing about the interior is the contrast between the old stair and the shiny super furniture that is new designed. The confrontation between the historical and contemporary is what makes this project so special. More pictures can be downloaded here!
