Type: housing renovation town house
Location: city centre Leuven
Status: completed 2017

This otherwise spatious town house in the city centre lacks some hobby space for the children. How to create this space without ending up as so many Belgian backyard extensions.

The existing back facade already is an amalgams of painted brick, aluminium window frames and a dominating zinc extension on top. The wooden extension we design, restores the proportions between brick, wood and zinc. We extend the common walls with the neighbours to frame the new composition in white brick work.
