Poised between the concern to create a warm environment and the quest for a fascinating interplay of lines and surfaces that maximize the minimum. Spaciousness, circulation, light perception and perspective forming the core of every design. Sustainable, natural an honest materials, refined detailing, perception of space, perspectives and lots of light are the basis of every project.
We put great emphasis on durability, timelessness, life quality and strengthening the urban and village centers, so we refuse to build anymore new homes on unsustainable locations such as in allotments or ribbon development.
Although the portfolio includes mainly single family houses bruno Vanbesien architects refuses to specialize in one specific program. We specialize more into developping projects with extreme care, to work together with clients to a common goal. We work with like-minded external partners for larger scale projects with the necessary knowledge and professionalism to lead to a better than forseen result.
