Description by Wim Goes Architectuur

Within the Flemish farmlands, on a parcel fringed with pollard willows and surrounded by swamps, a pond and shrubbery, a typical north – south oriented farmhouse is located. It’s character is strikingly trustworthy and easy. Its environment evoke tranquillity, simplicity and reminiscence.

The refuge is a hyperlink between this panorama and structure, however on the similar time doesn’t attempt to be yet one more than the opposite or something new. It’s made in wooden with the métier of Grasp Carpenter Florent De Spiegeleir. Mastership is essential to me! It’s the information to deliver collectively materials in joints. A picket flooring is cantilevered over the pond. Picket vertical beams are bearing the roof. On the roof pink wooden shingles leads the rain to pink copper spouts giving again the water to the pond surrounding the pavilion. Like wooden, pink copper varieties a patina, maturing with time to seek out its magnificence.

An inside area could be shielded from winds, temperature and sound by sliding doorways. The liberty to vary the refuge with the change of nature, structure turns into a type of device in between the panorama and the human presence. It’s a studying course of to work together with the weather. The ever altering meteorological circumstances will change the inhabitants and so the structure. Dwelling with nature is nor an esthetical query nor a proper conduct. It’s a frame of mind.
