An architecture studio based in Bruges, called Cubyc Architects has had the hard task of designing a project called the DM Residence project which was completed in 2013. This project is a luxury family home which is located in Flanders, Belgium and it’s modern design style is easily recognizable.
Creating this residence was a fun, but at the same time a difficult task for the architects who had to create a modern residence by a continuous play of coupled volumes, all interacting with each other.
From the architects: “That play gives the owners different perspectives and spatial experiences.
All living areas are visually with each other, and with the wooded area connected, but you have to find out these connections in phases.
Each room has its own perspective. Doors and window frames are as minimal as possible present.
The office of the house has its own internal courtyard, the living room is connected to a walled pond and the kitchen opens onto the covered terrace with hot tub and fireplace. The main terrace integrates a large swimming pool, clad with the same tiles of the flooring and the facade.
Besides the office, the luxury house boasts a media room, fitness room, hammam, pool and a garage for up to four cars.
The facades are clad with ceramic tiles, in random vertical strips due to maintainability in a wooded area. The tiles give the house a burst of white in the rather dark wood. The ceramic tiles gave us the opportunity to use them consequently in facades, inner and outer flooring.”
