Architectural office ar-architecten was founded by Reinout Delobelle. The passionate team of ar-architecten uses their impressive service to the client as the main foundation of every commission. In short, they focus strongly on high-quality architecture and thorough detailing.
House DS is a renovation project in collaboration with Frederic Kielemoes and is located in the heart of Rumbeke. The visualisations show a brutalist gem in which the architectural balance between exposed concrete and brick immediately catches the eye. As far as the material palette is concerned, it was decided to go in a minimalist direction. This selectivity in materials results in a maximum living experience that clearly brings out the fine aspects of brutalism. The villa was renovated with attention for surprising sightlines and innovative connections between the various rooms. Split levels were also used and the team tried to create innovative circulations.
The minimal use of materials is directly opposite the maximum experience.
For this renovation, the main objective was to respectfully transform the qualitative work of architect Hendrik Hendrickx into contemporary living standards. To ensure that there was a clear line with the previous design, the team decided to give the new interior architecture a similar sculptural character. A well-considered move, because in this way, the transition brought about by the renovation seems nothing less than logical. Furthermore, Imagicasa is a fan of the dark green tint that was added to the palette as an accent colour, for instance in the kitchen. The predominantly neutral setting means that carefully selected details and accents are shown to their best advantage.
Ar-architecten, together with Frederic Kielemoes, has delivered a fine piece of work for the renovation of this stately villa!
