003  .  A HOUSE IN OSTENDE

Through three specific movements, a school as well as a house were projected. All movements start from a focused view on what is life in architecture, what makes a house a home and a school a home. How in every case, the window acts as our main opening and frame towards the inside/outisde world.  

The countryside of Ostende in the north of Belgium is chosen for the house, a location marked by tranquility and open landscapes. Adjacent to a house by Alvaro Siza, the new house creates an extroverted world, connecting to the surrounding fields and ponds whilst opening different views to its dweller.
