AAL / De Warande in Aalter

How to maximize square meters, minimize shadowing, optimize program mixture and still blend into the surrounding landscape? This project is an attempt to reinterpret the housing typology in one of this Belgian village with an exceptional landscape.

Raising from a socket layer of commercial ground-floor, the entire block is nicely undulated to blend harmoniously into the surrounding landscape . Every apartment is designed to benefit of maximum sun and enjoy wide terraces. The undulated profile allow to prevent vis-a-vis situations providing the widest possible view toward the horizon and the Belgian countryside.
