Farmhouse CL

JUMA architects as Architects

The renovation of this authentic farm sought to restore its lost charm, and increase the interior comfort.

JUMA beautifully integrated the entrance door and converted the connecting volume between the two wings of the house into a symmetrical whole, with solid wooden beams that support the new awning.

The existing roof construction was in poor condition and also very low. It was replaced by a new and higher roof truss and the existing Velux windows were substituted by traditional dormer windows. This made it possible to recuperate the old Boom roof tiles. This intervention resulted in the creation of a full-fledged floor, with dormer windows that not only provide natural light and views, but also enhance the rural character of the farm.

The difficult staircase was situated in an illogical place in the house and consequently removed. The new, sculptural spiral staircase is now a real eye-catcher providing a warm welcoming feeling in the entrance hall.

 
 

JUMA moved the kitchen to a more central location and the stove was ingeniously placed in the monumental hearth.

The massive exterior walls were insulated from the inside with eco-friendly materials and lime plastered on the exterior. Alternating with a few small, playfully positioned window openings, JUMA designed a number of strategically placed large arched windows in black wrought iron that are so characteristic of this style.

In addition, the annex in which the kitchen was originally located was demolished to make way for a new volume in wood, which now houses the fitness room. This new volume has been left open to reveal the beautiful wooden ridge, creating a wide spatial feeling within a fairly small surface.

The decoration was largely selected by JUMA architects at Par Terre in Sint-Martens-Latem.
