After living there for decades, he got the opportunity to buy a small building plot at the back of the garden of his house. The plot was part of the park of a former convent and featured 2 oak trees and 1 beech tree. Limited by his tight disposable budget, the mayor initially intended to build a ?turnkey house? with a local contractor.  He requested dmvA to check the design technically and budgetary.  But dmvA started designing instead.

A simple detached house, designed on an orthogonal grid of 9 squares with a central patio next to a covered terrace, as a response to the streetside-south orientation and the large scale surrounding apartment buildings. To preserve privacy, all windows can be covered outdoor by floor to ceiling aluminium sliding shutters, referring to the typical rural barn doors.

The principal was excited about dmvA?s proposal and finally built the house, staying within the budget.

 Anecdotes: Our client Joris Hindryckx has been awarded as ?best mayor? in Flanders for his realized projects during his mayor tenure with renowned Dutch architects Rapp + Rapp. Nevertheless, his first intention was to build a standard ?turnkey house? The floorplan is based on a grid of the typical patio houses from the Roman period, built on two orthogonal axes. The edifice has been erected under a tent construction the contractor built to protect the timber roof construction in exposed pine beams, to the rain.
