Extension vB4 by dmvA

Belgian architecture firm dmvA designed Extension vB4 as an addition for an A-frame vacation home located in Brecht, Belgium. Dealing with strict building regulations, the firm was able to design the modern trapezoid-like form while still respecting the original design.

They created a new entrance, library, and bathroom that merge well with the existing space by having a predominantly white interior.

The front and the back of the house feature large windows allowing views of the garden and pond. The front part has a movable partition wall that blocks site of the street. Now you see it…

…now you don’t!
