House JC / Bakermat atelier voor architectuur

March 18, 2023 Elisabeth Kostina 0

The ground floor of this typical Flemish townhouse consists of an entrance hall, and garage with an adjoining room furnished as an artist’s studio. The house had a typical extension with a kitchen, bathroom, and toilet. The degraded condition of this cramped extension became a strong argument for tearing it down. Instead, a new extension over the entire width of the main volume offers space for a dining room and kitchen. The artistic residents desired a strong graphic design for the expansion. Their dream was an extension with a reflection of their personality: colorful, graphic, dynamic, and daring.

Both on the outside and on the inside, a contrast has been applied: between historic and contemporary, between seclusion and openness.

The Original Appearance of The Dwelling. The dwelling is located in Bayi Village, Linwei District, Weinan City, Shaanxi Province. It was originally built around 2000 as a one-story flat-roofed building with a masonry structure with internal beams and structural columns. The safety inspection and identification of the dwelling structure showed that the safety performance of the building met the current code requirements, but due to years of no occupancy, there were problems such as water seepage from the roof, poor indoor ventilation and lighting, and mold on the interior walls. The owner wants to renovate and expand the dwelling, increase the functional units, continue the sloping roof form of the Guanzhong vernacular dwelling, retain the courtyard greenery, and control the construction cost.
