Offbeat haven

Moodboard rural house mix and match

A SHOCK INTERVENTION !

This country house makes fun of the trends to better prove her personality : an arty touch, conviviality, a twisted zest and perceptible taste for humor.

This very nice farmhouse brings a smile even to the border of the Forêt de Soignes. Immutable. The countryside near Brussels !

No need to break the rules, especially in that area of the Brabant-Wallon which sticks to its traditional housing. The architectural gesture of Caroline Notté is almost invisible from the outside, only few flat painted area in black and white in order to frame, underline, blur or on the opposite enhance the charming old bricks as well as revealing a dynamic between the different space planes. The universe of Caroline Notté is stretched to the outside with the conception of the garden and the integration of an unusual cabin!

BLACK & WHITE BUT ROCK’N’ROLL !  

Inside, without being allowed to touch on the existing building, Caroline Notté will however give new life to the walls and succeed to impose her universe.

To achieve that, she decided to enhance perspectives thanks to a very graphic black and white language through the interior. This red thread allows her to « erase » or give value to the walls,the  window and door frames, the curtains, the wooden blinds or the beams like those in the kitchen. The result is striking!

The different spaces are designed to better highlight what needs to be and the boundaries between interior and exterior are banished despite the small windows, the farmhouse being  a farmhouse!
