Two for tea

DMOA Architecten en tant que Architectes.

For the extension of the Corten House, a masterplan was made together with DMOA architects and landscape architect Jo Campo. The combination of Japanese architecture inspired pavilions and a wild swampy garden makes you feel as if being on a holiday in your own garden. The pavilions are connected with the Corten House using a foot bridge that runs through a swamp scattered with water-loving plants and higher grasses.

The pavilions are totally different from the original house, in terms of form, material, height…. The aim was to look for a design with an atmosphere of a lodge or a holiday home and therefore to cut with the strict lines of the original house and look for a warmer materialization. Using wood, painted black with a Swedish painting technique, and a black bitumen gable roof, the buildings have their own character, but it keeps a subtleness towards the green garden and the strong rhythm of the steel slats of the Corten House.

A low hanging canopy and the green bush, surrounding the buildings ensures the feeling of a safe haven, the feeling of being somewhere else in your own familiar environment.
