Belgian practice samyn and partners has created ‘house in the outskirts of brussels’, a contrasting, two-fold structure
that seeks to integrate itself into the surrounding landscape. designed for a cinematographer and his family,
the house is composed of mixed use professional studios and private quarters. west elevation

Presented as a lush curved facade, the dwelling features a semi-circular form that follows the path of the sun.
designed to benefit the vegetative exterior skin, the contoured orientation generates a protective outwards aesthetic,
directing the internal organization away from neighboring structures. on the opposing west side, a fully glazed wall
merges indoor and outdoor spaces, each room open and exposed to the adjacent private grounds.
