Modern Architecture house extension



Farmhouse-in-Gent

Modern Architecture house extension designed by Wim Goes

This modern architecture house is designed by Wim Goes Architectuur architects as an extension to a Belgium residence.

The site of the house is very green and serene, located next to a pond. The tall trees and bushes around it create privacy and give the opportunity for a more revealing extension to be built for this home.  First a new wine cellar is built, then the house addition part of which sits above it. The other part extends over the lake and looks as though it is floating on the water. What really makes this modern architecture house  special is the pleasant harmony of location, materials and comfort.

The new addition is made from wood and has an elegant mixture of a farm style house and modern architecture house. The façade consists of slim wood strips and glass walls. The strips are carefully selected by their strength. What’s interesting about their construction is they don’t carry any wind weight. That is because the strips have certain distance between them and the wind can blow through it. That is how they only carry the load of the roof. This effective construction sits beautifully around the rectangular-shaped space inside. This space represents a dining/resting area.

It provides both shelter from the natural conditions and a chance to relax or eat your meal among the natural beauty that surrounds this house. The place is also suitable for family gatherings or garden parties, though there isn’t really any garden, you get the feeling that you are really in one, because of all the visible land outside. The extension also has a wooden deck built to it. It allows a brief but refreshing walk among the water of the pond. From here you can also enjoy the views that the natural environment offers except that you can also feel the breeze.
