BD House: A Playful Brick Home in a Pine Forest
BD House is a contemporary brick house located in Bergen op Zoom, Netherlands. Designed by Space Encounters in 2022, BD House was a layered transformation of a modest white villa from the 1950s, situated between coastal dunes, a pine forest, and the open polder landscape.
The house has been enlarged, made future-proof, and adapted to changing wishes and demands for contemporary living. The combination of the existing volume and that of the extension creates a play between symmetry and asymmetry. The transparent facade is made of sustainably preserved Fraké wood, and the extension has been materialised in recycled dark brown bricks.
With its beautiful location, BD House offers a unique blend of cultural heritage, sustainable transformation, and the rich natural qualities of the area.
