- Architecture & development
The work of nōmar architects always revolves around the importance of dialogue. This time, this took the form of the interaction between an existing house and an annexe in the garden. As usual, they delivered a design that speaks a clear language and departed from a strong idea. Meet Pavilion and let yourself be pampered by a sleek but attractive result.
This project took place in a residential area of Lievegem, Belgium, and had the goal of becoming a garden office. From the start, it was clear that cohesion with the primary residence was essential, so the team started from there. Both buildings are quite close to each other, so they decided to accentuate the vertical lines of the pavilion the most. A useful tool for this were the columns placed on the outside, made of wood. At the same time, they proved to be a smooth match with the dark wood in the façade. Together, these elements guarantee a minimalist look, which was partly achieved by aligning the various volumes extensively with each other.
Combining the useful with the pleasant has rarely been so quick.
The austerity that you see on the outside is further extended on the inside. Take, for example, the brick floor and the completely black walls. Thanks to the large table, you can sit here with several people, but also on your own, this is the ideal place to settle down and be productive. A few decorative frames and flower arrangements create a homely atmosphere without being distracting. There is also a more comfortable chair with cushions and a set of side tables. Through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors, you can enter the pool in just a few steps: combining the useful with the pleasant has rarely been so quick. With Pavilion, nōmar architects once again proves that they have a perfect feel for how to make something that already exists even better. This garden office is precisely the addition to their home that the residents were looking for.
