The pavilion for ceramic of a Belgian artist

Perched on a soft slope, the extension conceived by Lava Architecten features a studio overlooking the surrounding environment and dominated by natural materials.

Connected to the home of ceramist Vera Stoefs through an iron walkway, the new pavilion designed by Lava Architecten has been conceived as a compact workspace where large ribbon windows help conveying abundant natural light. Articulated on two levels, it presents in the basement a room equipped for production and on the first floor an office destined to design activities.

On the outside, the slate shingle cladding not only works in continuity with a local architectural style, but happily relates to the red bricks of the next-door house, creating a dialogue between textures. Inside, the use of natural materials remains dominant, although it is enriched by the contrast created with exposed concrete elements.
