Located in Asse, Belgium, this house called ‘Greenhouse’, is designed by Verdickt & Verdickt Architecten and stands out because of its affordability and heat trapping ability.
The house is furnished minimally with whites and woods to complement the feeling of ‘openness’ that prevails throughout the abode. Such is achieved through the reverted house layout in which the private quarters are located below whilst the rest of the house is located above and set in an open-floor concept. This way, the architect is able to take advantage of the elevation to highlight the foliage and surrounding scenery through the floor-to-ceiling windows as well as attain ‘openness’.
In contrast to the second storey, the private quarters beneath is arranged in a ‘closed’ manner with narrow corridors and minimal windows.
