It's like so many times in life: Looking at the 1970s bungalow from the outside, it doesn't seem very attractive. But appearances are deceptive, after all, we should not judge things by their appearance. The Project K by JUMA Architects also shows this very clearly, because what looks like a simple bungalow from the outside reflects a contemporary Belgian-style villa inside.
After the redesign nothing remains of the original structure. Starting with the entrance door, JUMA's architects have gained a lot of living space by removing several stairs and dismantling the former garage - and at the same time have created a fantastic view of the L-shaped garden.
Sober colours and materials ensure a calm feeling of tranquillity
The turning point in the redesign of the Belgian bungalow was the dissolution of the garage. It had to give way to a kitchen flooded with light. Embossed with sober colours, a white cooking island of marble and golden accents, the real highlight is the large Vertigo pendant luminaire by designer Constance Guisset in the middle of the room.
In addition to the kitchen, the dining and lounge area is equipped with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide plenty of daylight and a relaxing view of the garden. The sky-blue swimming pool is also visible from the kitchen as well as from the bedroom and the adjoining bathroom, creating a feeling of tranquillity and relaxation.
