dmvA Architects have completed this renovation on a traditional house in Brussels. The site was purchased by the owner due to its vast gardens and great location, however he wanted to completely rethink the house. The neighbouring properties had to approve the design planned by dmvA due to the area's building regulations, so they were unable to design a complete metamorphosis, rather just an adjustment to the existing structure.
The end result is a truly striking addition to the back of the house, and a completely transformed interior. The two large sculptural volumes at the back connect and open up the back of the house to the outdoors. All facades were painted white, and the interior furnished in monochromatic tones. The pool was also renovated and framed by a 'illuminating glazed retaining wall'.
