This farmhouse designed by Vincent Van Duysen Architects is an example of the harmonious fusion of traditional and modern design. DC2 is the second project designed for the client by the architects and is in Tielrode, Belgium. The brief was to build a main house adapted to the rural surroundings as well as two farm barns. From the exterior the property blends in seamlessly to the environment. The wooden facade and traditional rural house structure references the local style, but the materials keep it current. The use of sunlights allow natural light to infiltrate the house without impacting on the exterior design. Indoors the look is clean and keeping with the wood theme throughout.
Landscape architect Paul de Roose kept the outdoors intentionally simple with carefully placed trees and a surrounding holly hedge. A collaboration with Denc!-studio allowed for the sustainable construction of the property.
