Belgium’s residential architecture has been dominated by widely-produced pavilion-type houses, which are affordable and can be quickly built. The industrialization of housing enabled many people to achieve the ideal of a house with a garage and a garden, however these homes are often compromised by poor quality in terms of space and integration within the urban landscape.

adn Architectures‘s House AND draws inspiration from the existing building and references its traditional pitched roof – however it playfully inverts the apex. The new 24 square meter addition’s wooden fa├žade also clashes with the masonry of the house. The interiors are simple and serene, and windows frame carefully chosen views of the surrounding landscape.
