HOUSE D.B.

Declerck-Daels, Architecten as Architects & Interior Architects

This project contains/is about the extension of an existing detached house in Moorsele. The house is from 1962 and was originally designed by Architect Jos Thybergin.


The existing house was well preserved and was in a good condition. The extension of the house was made towards the garden side and the left neighbour.


One building layer with a flat roof was added to the family house. The current living area was extended and a wide corridor was added to reach the new multipurpose room.


The new part of the house is contrasting with the current house by use of materials and its shape. This creates an fascinating dialogue. The new volume was framed in galvanised steel. We created transparency to connect with the garden. That is how a feeling of clarity and openness reach to the inhabitants.


From the inside out the old house is still visible by leaving the brick walls visible. Through the sloped ceiling, various ways of daylight enter the house.
