House BM: Multifaceted Concrete House Fully Connected With Nature

Set within a forest clearing in Ghent, Belgium, House BM is part of Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu‘s residential portfolio. This 304 square meter concrete house connects with the surrounding nature through each of its facets. Starting from a map with the exact position and diameter of every tree on the property, the architects had to come up with a solution to building the house without interfering with the surroundings. Gently lifted above the ground with a foundation on wells, the structure allows the wooded environment and tree roots to pass unaffected beneath the floor plate. The circular floor plan is arranged around a central courtyard which wraps around a cluster of existing mature trees. Bordered with 18 windows comprised of large glass panels, the exterior environment is woven into the internal experience, maintaining views from all rooms within the dwelling. Interiors dressed in concrete finishes contribute to the overall strength and design, but also define a contemporary collection of interior spaces. Such a nice place with carefully designed spaces that care for the inhabitant’s need for comfort and respect to its natural surroundings. Wish I can live there. [source]
