If there was ever a perfect bachelor pad in the world, this would be it. It’s a residence located in Belgium, designed by Govaert & Vanhouette Architects. The house is basically just a simple concrete shell that offers everything a bachelor needs to feel awesome. The project was completed in 2016 and occupies a site measuring 809 square meters in total.
This concrete shell may not look like much but wait till you see all the extraordinary things it offers, like this outdoor pool, some really stylish living spaces, cozy bedroom suites and even a basement entertainment area. The whole idea at the base of the project was to create something that perfectly suits the owner’s lifestyle. The result was this sculptural pad.
The residence has two floors above ground and a basement level below. The spaces are organized into two volumes. One is a long and horizontal structure that contains all the ground floor spaces. Together they form the day area and they also include the pool house and the poolside area.
The second volume is smaller and also made of concrete. It forms the upper level and it contains the master bedroom and its bathroom as well as two extra bedroom suites for guests. On top of them is a private terrace placed on the roof of the house.
The kitchen, dining space and living room form an open plan and offer views of the garden and the river which is very close to the house. In fact, the river is so close that the architects had to come up with a way to offer their client some privacy for the poolside area. The solution they came up with was to design a series of sliding panels which extend the pool house and which can completely hide the pool area from passing boats on the river.
