Studio Farris Architects was commissioned to convert the complex of house and stables of an 18th century farm located in Lennik, a small town in an agricultural area close to Brussels, into a single family house.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanOf the 4 existing volumes, a storage room and pigsty were demolished, while the other pigsty and the adjacent 1960’s house were renovated.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeStarting from a careful research and study of the farmhouse typology and how to keep and reinforce its authenticity while at the same time allowing it to answer to contemporary living standards, a concept that is often seen in old farms around the area was applied.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeTo provide each room with the necessary amount of natural light, windows and doors were bricked up and cut out in a pragmatic way, making the façade a whimsical patchwork of old and new scars that show its history and give back and reinforce the identity it had lost over the years.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeA box-in-box system was created to avoid any chemical reactions with sulfates in the ground and walls of the original farm. This system also takes care of the energy-efficiency of the house.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeTypological fragments are reinterpreted throughout the house. The fireplace, which is a 6 meter high, suspended steel construction, is the heart of the house.Save this picture!SectionThe front garden was designed to create serenity and connect the farmhouse to its outbuildings. The backyard is a patchwork of pragmatic shapes in typological materials that enhance the connection with the horizon and create unexpected perspectives.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeProject gallerySee allShow lessMehmet Kütükçüoğlu, Ertuğ Uçar and Feride Çiçekoğlu to Curate Turkish Pavilion at 20…Architecture NewsVietnamese Food Pavilion / MIA Design StudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” Year:  Save this picture!© Tim Van de Velde+ 18 Share Belgium Year:  CopyHouses, Renovation•Lennik, Belgium Farmhouse Lennik / Studio Farris Architects ArchDaily “COPY”center_img Contractor: Projects Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  256 m² Area:  256 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs 2013 photographs:  Tim Van de VeldePhotographs:  Tim Van de Velde Architects: Studio Farris Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio Farris ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationLennikBelgiumPublished on December 16, 2015Cite: “Farmhouse Lennik / Studio Farris Architects” 16 Dec 2015.
