shedBOX

Atelier Janda Vanderghote as Architects

shedBOX, the existing concrete structure is the blueprint for the new plan.
The conversion of a shed into a single-family home in Gentbrugge.

An old brewery is being converted into a home. The plot in question is part of an inner area that is in full development of a family home infringement project.


The shed roofs are broken down. The existing concrete structure becomes the blueprint for the new plan.


A new steel structure was developed  between the old concrete structure. The concrete draws itself as a pencil line between "old" and "new".


The existingelements require a subtle interweaving of qualityspaces and honest materials that enter into a dialogue with the existing rough structure. The contradiction between roughness and refinement forms atension to frame the whole.


The new home nestles in the existing contours of the shed. This gives the house a large outdoor space on the living spaces and an intimate outdoor space on the more private spaces.


The communal garden becomes the green core of the entire site.

1. Sipo – windows
2. Steel – new structure
3. Concrete tiles – floor living area
4. Cement tiles – floor sleeping area
