One of the important principles for the own modernist villa of Peter Callebout was the integration with the environment, something often forgotten at the coast. This is why the original dune glowings were left intact.
This villa consists of parallel walls and streight corners, between which the rooms go into eachother.
The whole gives a Japanse impression.
At the beginning of 2005, we got the following remark (translated by us):
'This architect was an important modernist of English origin. Belgium made him large, but broke him down as well. They took all his properties, and afew months later he died. A beautiful example of Belgian architecture.'
