'Portrait of a House'
When two architects stumbled upon a derelict manor house amidst an overgrown victorian garden, it was love at first sight. Determined to restore the house to its former glory but also ensure its future existence, they developed a multi-functional plan enabling different layouts and uses in time. Even though the building looks like one coherent structure, history learned that it developed organically as expansions were added over time. True to the past they adapted the house to its specific needs re-interpreting the old rather than bringing in the new. And again the house has found a new coherency, as if nothing ever changed.
'Portrait of a house' is a photo project in collaboration with Frederik Vercruysse.
