Wall Residence by AND’ROL:
“The plot’s particularities are on the one hand its perturbing position near to a steep rock slope, and on the other hand its modest depth and its uncommon longitudinal orientation parallel to the street. Starting up stage for the youthful Belgian architects had been traces of a nearby former stronghold. The principal layout element consists of an enclosing wall with a recessed growing element, to which the modest and sober primary house nestles and adapts. A 2nd shallow volume that homes a big quantity of storage spaces is also situated behind the wall.
The architects chose light grey precast concrete lintels as a reinterpretation of the old fortress walls of rubble stone. The relief of the oozing programs of grout reinforces its rough character. All 3 remaining facades are clad with dark grey fibre cement panels. The asymmetric roof functions a deep-set window facing out to the south.
Within, a split-level organization responds to the plot’s sloping ground, intensifies the open space notion and provides the compact creating a generous and spacious character. The utilized components are deliberately kept simple and easy the bare prestressed concrete slabs, the polished concrete flooring and the concrete kitchen worktop reference the building’s exterior.”Section
