Displaying a striking contrast between open indoor spaces and its cloistered exterior, the Hard Werken residence by I.S.M.Architecten has strong modern vibe. By trying to achieve a minimum landscape intrusion, the architects chose the black color for the exterior walls and integrated the project in a naturally sloped terrain: “The volume of the house is partially pushed in the slope resulting in a facade that is limited in height. The addition of a long horizontal window between ground and first floor gives the house a certain lightness. As a result, the house stands modestly against the backdrop of the landscape.”

According to the architects, the circulation was one of the starting points for the design of the house: “The stairs are positioned next to a glass wall that reflects the transparency of the outer shell. The upstairs hallway contains all the bedroom cabinets, the skylights provide natural light. All circulation on the ground floor is situated adjacent to the patio and flow naturally in the surrounding spaces.” The residence is located in Kessel-Lo, Belgium and by the looks of the photos below, it takes full advantage of its privileged environment.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
