The flemish farmlands evoke memories and feelings of tranquillity and simplicity. Refuge is a link between this landscape and architecture, but at the same time does not try to be one more than the other or anything new. A wooden floor is cantilevered over the pond. Wooden vertical beams are bearing the roof. On the roof red wood shingles leads the rain to red copper spouts giving back the water to the pond surrounding the pavilion. Like wood, red copper forms a patina, maturing with time to find its beauty.

An inner space can be protected from winds, temperature and sound by sliding doors. The freedom to change the refuge with the change of nature, architecture becomes a kind of tool in between the landscape and the human presence. It’s a learning process to interact with the elements. The ever changing meteorological conditions will change the inhabitants and so the architecture. Living with nature is nor an esthetical question nor a formal behavior. It’s a state of mind.
