House GL consists out of the re-structuring and re-furbishment of a country house built in the 1970’s in the suburbs of Brussels. The shell of the residence was renovated and respected as it was originally built: with high-quality materials and structurally very sound. The new connection between the living and work-area is created by a glass corridor - also functioning as an extension of the reception area - which was the main annex to the existing building. The interior is designed in a pure and minimalistic design language, accentuating a calm and tranquil athmosphere in this private house. Subdued colors and high quality materials were chosen to harmonize with the outside shell and other existing elements of the building.
