One of our first assignments for Applied Architecture was to design a small building to house an AirBnB. We were allowed to choose our own location, disregarding logic and cost. An opportunity to be creative. I decided to put this structure on top of one of the roofs of the Belfry in Bruges.
The house had views over the city and would be able to house 2 guests. The larger balcony baths in sunlight during the entire afternoon and early evening. From the smaller balcony on the bedroom side, you could enjoy a beautiful sunrise. In the bedroom itself, the guests could wake up and go to bed with a spectacular view on the belltower of the Belfry.
The entire exterior is covered in bronze cladding, including the sunscreens that prevent the rooms from overheating during those hot summer days.
