diederendirrix as Architects

The two houses that were realized as a continuation of the Don Bosco project fill the last gap in the wall surrounding the new inner square by their hooked shape. Because of the neighbours at the back, these houses are windowless on that side and are completely oriented towards the square. Each house occupies half of the ground floor. On the first floor, one house continues to the corner, while the other house does the same on the second and third floors. This mutual exchange of space has resulted in a spatial complexity that is further enhanced by the fact that both houses have different exterior spaces: patios, roof terraces, loggias. This complex composition is hidden from view by the uniform cladding of the facade, which keeps one guessing where one house ends and the other begins, especially since at the lower layers the floor heights cannot be discerned from the facade.
