House VDV, Destelbergen, Belgium by Graux & Baeyens Architects | via

This single family house is located just outside the town of Ghent. The plot is part of a domain where us to be a castle destroyed in WWII. Parts of the surrounding wall is still standing and is a silent reminder of this history.

House VDV appears simultaneously familiar and strange. The volume, consisting of one level with a pitched roof, alludes to familiar archetypes such as the rural homestead or barn. But at the same time the volume is broken up by large glass facades, so that the relationship is established with the surrounding trees and the listed castle wall.
