Imagicasa takes you back to a stunning project by our loyal partner JUMA architects. This authentic farmhouse in Deurle regained its lost charm thanks to the refined work of the young and self-willed architectural firm.
The team from JUMA architects stands for timeless design with great detailing. The studio is always looking for the perfect harmony between architecture, interior and furniture, and completes each project with a personal touch, entirely in accordance with the client's wishes. This was no different for this recent project called 'Hoeve cl'. The aim of this authentic farmhouse was to bring back the lost charm of the building and to increase its comfort. JUMA architects likes to stage the entrance door beautifully and converted the connecting volume between the two wings of the house into a symmetrical whole, with solid wooden beams supporting the new canopy. In addition, the staircase stood in a very illogical place in the house, so it was demolished. The new sculptural spiral staircase with small windows behind it is now the eye-catcher and welcomes the residents warmly into the entrance hall. The kitchen, consisting of natural stone combined with special veneers, was also moved to a more central place. The extension where the original kitchen stood was now transformed into a gym. It was opened up to the beautiful wooden ridge, creating a feeling of space in a fairly small area.
The small windows behind the staircase provide a mystical light.
The massive outer walls were ecologically insulated from the inside and kaleidoscopes from the outside. By means of alternating small, playfully positioned window openings JUMA architects designed large arched windows in black wrought iron at strategically chosen places, which completely typify the farmhouse style. For the decoration, there was a cooperation with the concept store Par Terre from Sint-Martens-Latem. This intervention resulted in the creation of a farmstead full of character with an enormous amount of light and views; all the choices made by the team of architects contributed to strengthening the rural character of this project.
