Govaert & Vanhoutte Architects' Minimalistic Concrete Pad-Belgium
The river Leie/Lys, that runs through the historic city Ghent is well known for its leisure boating.  A bit further downstream from the city centre of Ghent, many boats reduce throttle or come to a full stop to gaze upon a residence, quite different from the other houses along the river. Amidst a golf terrain like garden lies a sculptural concrete bachelor pad, grafted on the lifestyle of its owner. The view from the river shows a long floating horizontal concrete framework that defines the ground floor, inside as well as outside.
