A-Framed VB4 House Extension
Thinking of renovating your exterior and adding some drama to the façade? Take a look at this incredible a-framed house extension that was undertaken by Belgium-based DMVA Architecten in the suburbs of Brecht, Germany. The former vacation house has been renovated into a fully functional residence with an extravagantly highlighted roof. Let’s see what has been improved in this project.
Extending A-Framed House
Exterior Of A-Framed House & Its Extension
Originally a simple A-framed construction that is hiding somewhere in the forest of Brecht, it has now acquired a new look with a help of Belgium-based architecture company. The family needed extra space, so the architect team has added up about 50 square meters to the existing construction. The peculiar shape of the original house had to be preserved because there were certain restrictions regarding the building of new objects in this area. Construction of an extension was a bit of a challenge.
The extension of the house follows the same structural trapezoid frames, echoing its original design. Although quite dramatic on the outside, the house is full of light due to full glazing and purely white interior design. Inside the extension there is a living room and a library. To those who are concerned about privacy, inside the extension there is a sliding partitioning wall that can shut off the dwellers from the outside world. However, that doesn’t seem necessary as the location of the house is hidden by the trees.
The outdoors of the house also has a very important role in forming the complete image of the residence. Apart from lush forest greenery, there is a small pond. Despite appearing rustic in the outdoors, the interior of the house is very modern and even futuristic with flowing lines and lots of fluorescent whites. The house doesn’t really need more colors, as the exterior compensates most of it.
