An old brewery is being converted into a home. The existing concrete structure is the blueprint for the new plan. The conversion of a shed into a single-family home in Gentbrugge, Belgium.

The plot in question is part of an inner area that is in full development of a family home infringement project.

The shed roofs are broken down. The existing concrete structure becomes the blueprint for the new plan.

A new steel structure was developed  between the old concrete structure. The concrete draws itself as a pencil line between “old” and “new”.

The existing elements require a subtle interweaving of quality spaces and honest materials that enter into a dialogue with the existing rough structure. The contradiction between roughness and refinement forms a tension to frame the whole.

The new home nestles in the existing contours of the shed. This gives the house a large outdoor space on the living spaces and an intimate outdoor space on the more private spaces.

The communal garden becomes the green core of the entire site.
