Brussels House

This house for an artist, designed by Belgian Samyn and Partners. 

The architects had to design the structure, the insulation, and the water-tightness of the envelope and resolve the building physics issues in order to receive the necessary support, irrigation and fertilisation systems for the plants that are set into a felt support stapled to rigid PVC panels.

Immense trans-lucid white polyester curtains in widths of 1.6 m suspended from the top of the structure to the ground floor are planned to run along this great “window” to ensure shade in the summer months.
