House/Design Studio in Kortrijk

The building site contains about 25 large existing trees along a brook. Some of these are completely grown out willows and alders. The house itself is conceptualized as a quite closed wooden box in this landscape. Underneath the box is a concrete pedestal that varies in height according to the elevation of the terrain.
