more walls

ok so there may not be any walls in this building- similarly to one of my more recent posts, this is a townhouse that has a grandiose total of zero walls.  this house in belgium utilises voids and split levels to separate the different spaces within the home, and like the singaporean home lets the home be flooded with lots of natural light.

Void House 2 Building Reduced To Its Essence: Void House in Belgium

this building is called the void house, it was designed by gon zifroni. the photos are by filip dujardini.

zifroni-“This design choice, linked to the creation of a continuous space and the absence of a ground floor, gives this project a resolutely modern character. The internal minimalism is the fruit of a pragmatic approach, which involved proceeding by elimination, thereby reducing the building to its essence. This minimalism can also be seen in the limited recurrence of structural elements (the stairs, which form a common thread throughout the internal design) and materials: aluminium, brushed metal and wood panelling on supporting walls and floors, which is made from natural bamboo slats processed without using any treatments or toxic adhesives”

me being me- i like the openess of the hone at the allowance of natural light to complete invade all the space. i also like the creative layout that generates some privacy but allows so much openess as well. i do find the interior a bit dull however- the monotony does my head in after some time.
