a soft blanket for a rugged villa

Woluwe-Saint-Pierre - 2017

The stripped-back design of this villa in Woluwe is perfect in its simplicity. Architect Bruno Erpicum paid meticulous attention to every detail when he designed it. The plans for the garden flow seamlessly from the philosophy behind the main building. I went back to the essence when planting, using shadbush and honey locust to cover the solid building in a soft green blanket. Decorative grasses marry the pool and the garden and provide subtle movement.
