Poot Architecture-Saint Benedic
감성적인 곡선과 미니멀한 공간이 전달하는 세인트 베네딕. 50년대~60년대 건물들 사이에서 우아한 건축환경을 보여준다. 절제된 공간 속, 원형계단은 위아래를 연결하는 소통공간인 동시에 생활공간을 구현한다.
Saint Benedict is a minimal house located in Mortsel, Belgium, designed by Poot Architecture. A lot in the row is built on for the first time. In a street with mostly monotonous houses from the 50s and 60s, the rare bay windows are the only inspiring elements. The design is an interpretation of the typical aspects: the neutral red brick is used in a vertical tile bond, the bay window is executed as a round shape. The plan is organized around the central oval staircase: the living space is spread over two levels for different moments in the day: working at home, reading, playing,… A double-height kitchen on the street side gives the house a large dimension and ensures the connection between the different living areas. In the sleeping quarters and an extra study, on the other hand, the emphasis is on seclusion and silence.
