MATCHING ROOF AND FAÇADE

Roof & Façade

This single-family house in Veurne, Belgium combines a business premises and a family home at the same time. The roof and the façade blend into each other and were realised with ceramic materials.

The client needed office space for his engineering agency as well as a home for his family. The dwelling architect Peter Verhaeghe created offers enough space for both. To ensure privacy the two parts are clearly separated from each other by the concrete carport, located in the middle. This position also grants direct access from both parts of the house.

LIVING AND WORKING BY THE WATER
The “Living room with a view” dwelling is situated on a corner plot with a view over the canal. Advantage of this unique location was taken by creating a generous sitting area with large viewing windows. It is partly covered by the building, offering shade and protection when needed.

RELAXED STYLE
The client wanted a modern, but above all calm architecture. The structure is contem- porary, but at the same time it is serene – creating a laid back and feel-good atmosphere. This is also reflected in the choice of natural materials that envelope the building – ceramic facing bricks and roof tiles. Both blend together, providing additional tranquillity.

 

A PERFECT COMBINATION
The architect had already successfully worked with the same facing bricks. So, he was looking for a small-scale, plain tile for the ‘tone-on-tone’ look of the façades and the roof. Plain smooth clay tiles in the colour Amarant proved to be the most successful combination. The result is a stunning and pleasantly subtle house that fulfils all of the client’s requirements.
