本项目的客户非常喜欢收集多余的建筑材料，经年累月他也有了一系列规模可观的“收藏品”。因此他希望建筑事务所de baes & associates能够使用这些“收藏品”来将一座废弃的商店改造为一个办公室兼复式住宅空间。这是一个十分与众不同的项目框架，也为建筑师带来了设计的机遇和挑战，其中第一个挑战便是对建筑外墙的处理。原有的外墙过于怪异，空有后现代的形式，毫无内容可言，以致于跟周边的环境完全脱节。
The client brought us an unusual framework for this project: to transform an abandoned building which used to be a local store into an office and a duplex apartment by reusing unwanted materials which he collected over the years. The first notable challenge was the outer shell of the building, which was so misshapen that it lacked any connection with its context. It was only postmodern form, without content.
We started solving the equation by moving the entrance of the office to the side so that the apartment floors could use the curtain wall for ambient daylight. This drastically reduced construction costs since we could use the existing atrium as a central entrance to the house. The integration of the former storefront also strengthened the building’s relationship with the street while creating a division between private and public spaces.

Inside the building, a new direction was introduced. The existing framework was used as boundaries to delineate different zones for different purposes, creating separate atmospheres whilst keeping an open view to the landscape at the back. A wavy, translucent curtain wall made of polycarbonate was installed to act as a filter towards the street, as well as a mirror to add a whimsical touch to the design.

Halfway through our design process we were invited to visit the client’s warehouse. Some people collect works of art, others collect stamps and coins. Our client, interestingly enough, collected building materials sourced from second-hand websites and auctions: from parquets, plywood panels and an old villa door to a gas fireplace and a complete kitchen. In contrast to the usual course of events whereby specific reusable materials are searched for to realize a design, in this instance the design process was reverse engineered in order to be able to build a home which could vividly encapsulate the sustainability vision shared by the owner and the architect alike.

Maximizing the reusability of all spaces and available resources had become the leitmotif in the design of this house. The thoughtful application of unwanted materials created myriad possibilities for a constantly changing relationship with the context. At the same time, the openness and choice of construction elements like the wavy polycarbonate wall allow for new interpretations of the space, providing the tabula rasa with diverse purposes to cater for future needs and desires.
