Contemporary HS Residence by Cubyc architects
Bruges-based architectural practice, Cubyc architects, has designed the HS Residence project. Completed in 2013, the contemporary home is located in Flanders, Belgium.
According to the architects: “The house is built on a rectangular plot on in the outskirts of Bruges. The existing bungalow from the 60s was demolished because it no longer meet the current needs of the owner or energy requirements. As the existing bungalow of the sixties did not longer meet the current comfort and energy standards, the complete building was demolished. The location of the former building has dictated the position of the new contemporary property.
“The implantation of the new house had to be derived from the plot of the old house.
“Large canopies protect the house from overheating. Because of them, the designers were able to use large floor-to ceiling windows on the garden side without compromises.
“The canopies do not only control the indoor climate they also create nice covered outdoor spaces that can be used trough out the year.
“The perception of the house is a succession of different perspectives and experiences. These different perspectives lead the visitors to explore the property.”
