in the ‘corten house’ in the suburbs of antwerp, belgium, DMOA architecten has placed weathering steel lamellae in command. inside, as well as outside, they define the visual integrity of the architecture. the spaces mark out the boundaries wherever necessary and open again when suited. they vary in density, taking the function they enclose into consideration. for instance, the pool and garden are partially covered to disrupt views from the neighboring residences while dispersing towards the nearby gingko trees. the properties of the material allow them to glow in the rusty evening sun and capture shadows upon the façade. these features are all capable through the implementation of perforated plates, which have been welded to handle the climate conditions.
