House BM has forests running through, around and even inside it. Created by Belgian Architecten DVVT, the home is shaped like a glazed donut with a facade made up of 18 windows that merge the interiors with the surrounding woodland. It is a modern, circular and gorgeous family home with minimal impact that hovers delicately over the ground.
Gent-based Architecten DVVT worked in collaboration with Joris Van Huychem to create this unique house in the woods. To make the most out of the beautiful surroundings, they made the whole facade from 18 windows. Its glazed skin fills every corner with natural light and cancels out the transition between outside and inside.
The floor to ceiling windows have also been oriented towards the internal courtyard so inhabitants can enjoy the trees growing inside it. A long lasting concrete structure in combination with plywood window shutters make up a modern sleek aesthetic.
Best of all, this gorgeous house was built on (tiny) concrete stilts that leave the ground untouched while ensuring that the trees’ roots can grow freely underneath.
