Extension house with pool where life is good, work and relax!
How to successfully integrate contemporary equipment with an old building to combine tradition and modernity? Well, by implementing a house extension with indoor pool, of course! However, inserting a pool into an old house of character is not an easy task. The proof, in the city of Ghent with an extension house with pool design by the specialists of the Belgian studio “ANNO architects”!
Restored and renewed in 2018, the house in question was originally designed by the famous Louis Minard in 1878. Once inside this charming house, what strikes us particularly, it is undoubtedly the l authentic atmosphere that the architects managed to preserve after the renovation. Spacious and bright interior, deco rich in ornaments and refined details, wooden spiral staircase .. these are just some of the elements reminiscent of the life that was once part of the house!
Given the poor initial condition of the house, heavy structural work was needed, but the result is both aesthetic, practical and very pleasant. Then there is a new kitchen with a dining area open to the outside, all in full harmony with the extension, an office and lounge on the ground floor, rest areas in the first and second, without forgetting the home cinema and the workshop in the attic.
To create a fluid transition between tradition (the old house) and innovation (the house extension with indoor pool), the creators of this place have opted for a closed courtyard. The extension of the house has been transformed into a pleasant open and airy pool house. Six meters high and twenty meters wide, the indoor pool is undoubtedly the focal point of the house. A unique and relaxing place, which can be closed through a sliding patio door . Added to this are a few skylights creating interesting lighting effects, accented more by the interior in pure white.
