Inside, it’s divided into “living zones” differentiated by bold hues. Electric yellow, anyone?
Perspective buyers of this home in the suburbs of Brussels, Belgium, are in for a surprise. Not only is the timber structure a departure from the standard brick homes in the rural area, but the vivid blue and yellow interior makes quite an impression.
Designed by Antwerp-based Binst Architects in 2012, the single-story home was conceived as a pavilion that integrates into its surroundings with glass walls, concealed exterior doors, and two colorful alcoves that penetrate the facade. The alcoves—one of which is used as a TV room and the other as a library—branch off of a central living area and feature sliding glass doors that open each space to the lawn.
In addition to the library and TV room, the nearly 2,400-square-foot interior manages to fit in a large kitchen and living area, as well as a formal dining space, office, four bedrooms, and one bathroom.
Outside, the garden comes with a lily pad-strewn pond and a patio complete with a built-in kitchen. Also included is a detached, two-car garage that currently doubles as a potters studio but offers opportunities for various other uses.
