Dutch firm JUMA Architects completed the conversion of a 1976 bungalow in Belgium into a modern villa with a peaceful ambiance. Entitled Project K, the residence features minimalist interiors, with bright finishes and a harmonious design scheme throughout.

“An L-shaped volume containing a covered terrace and the master bedroom was built around the swimming pool,” the architects said. “Both the bedroom and the adjoining bathroom enjoy a direct view of the pool. One experiences a blissful holiday feeling throughout the entire residence.”

Simplicity was key to designing a continuous flow of spaces, with clever storage units to keep the residents’ belongings organized. The family spends time together in the open-plan living and dining area, which connects to the inner courtyard.

“The colors and materials were kept light and are accented with occasional black detailing in the window frames, door handles and light fittings,” the architects said. “The home exudes a sense of serenity, creating an atmosphere in which the residents can fully unwind.” [Photos courtesy of Juma Architects]
