Text description provided by the architects.

This rural residence was built in the hills of Tilff, a village located in the region of Liège, Belgium. The client requested a house with a living area of just over 3,200 square feet that would include two bedrooms. The steep slope, orientation, trees, and rugged terrain of its location led to a straightforward and volumetric design that fits in well with the surrounding environment.
The house features wide-framed views of the beautiful property and expresses itself as an abstract floating mass on the slope, stretching in length and cantilevering over the landscape, respecting its unique character.

The project design is based on composite construction techniques, and attention to detail is accentuated through the use of materials: natural zinc cladding, exposed concrete, anodized aluminum railing, and stainless steel.
Two concrete volumes comprise the ground floor beneath the main body, one of which contains a two-car garage.

A glass cylinder ”pierces” through the central interior resulting in a rooftop panoramic conservatory. The cylinder also provides access to residential rooms on the first floor via the curving staircase from the entrance hall.
The interior layout is designed to be loft-like, with large open spaces revolving around freestanding walls.

The pieces interact with each other while each having their own definition and function according to the specific relationships they establish with the external environment.
