It’s a 291 square meter project. The district “de Linie” where this project is located was, in 2011, the scene of the Blue Moon manifestation, an event directed by Toyo Ito consisting in the symbiosis between architecture and visual art. This particular building sits on a 12 m wide and 15 m deep plot, it has a flat roof just like the other surrounding buildings and it’s also a contemporary combination of art and architecture.

This project is in fact a house. It has an octagonal shape and a strict organization of the spaces. The exterior of the house is entirely white. As for the façade and the walls, some are perforated with organic holes in the concrete that allow daylight to fall into the interior. This is a truly unique project that includes living organic patterns and artistic architecture. This is also a sustainable project. The heating and hot water demand is supported by 10 square meters of solar panels placed on the roof. Also, the use of daylight has priority over other energy sources.{found on archdaily}
