The farm used to consist of several buildings clustered around a residential section. Most farms in the Roeselare area consist of two volumes, situated either parallel or perpendicular to each other. The new house was incorporated parallel to the barn. Positioning the house in an L-shape opposite the barn highlights the residential section and strengthens the character of the space. The residential section lies at the heart of the site and acts as a hub for all internal circulation.
Its simple volume and the use of contemporary materials (wood and zinc) transform the house into a modern interpretation of a centuries-old archetype that now stands as a harmonious, yet exciting single entity alongside the traditional barn in red brick.
