next generation collective home in belgium explores the future of co-living

ABS bouwteam partners with govaert & vanhoutte architects for a unique collective home in oosterzele, belgium. designed as a ‘triplet villa’, the house combines two flexible lofts on the ground floor and a penthouse on the two top floors without compromising privacy, comfort and aesthetics.

with this project, the ghent-based building company demonstrates how a collective building, especially a triplet, results in savings on unnecessary costs, acting truly long-term, with flexible living units, sustainable technology and keeping family members close by. responsible for the design, belgian architects govaert & vanhoutte  split the minimalist villa in three stand-alone homes, each with a private garden or large terrace.

triple glass and well insulated outside walls are combined with a D-level ventilation system and a geothermal heat pump with underfloor heating and passive cooling. the ‘smart home’ control system ensures efficient energy use, access control, atmosphere selection, audio and screens automation. the building can be adjusted towards a care, multi-generational or flexible loft in a second phase, ensuring a long-lasting co-housing solution.
