MUC / Secret House

Located in a quiet and wooded area of Brussels, the Secret House blends into its sloped site. The domestic program meanders along the natural topography, slowly descending, weaving in and out of the hill to catch maximum
views and sunlight while avoiding existing trees. The snake-like anatomy of this house wraps around itself to create intimacy for the master bedroom and to embrace the swimming pool facing the children’s bedrooms. The façade uses a curtain wall system to create one long, generous window towards the view. The rest of the volume is tucked into the earth. The house complies
to ‘passive’ energy standards, minimizing its impact on the environment.
