Photography by Filip Dujardin.
On it. Two rooms above it. For two children. One roof. Under a single roof. A single roof that is really many roofs. Which is the echo of all those roofs in that street.
That echo that is the same. That echo that is that bit different. The echo that presents a broken reflection of the surroundings. That breaks the roof. That forms the roof and is in folds. Creases.
That echo that can be seen from outside. That can be felt from inside. Wood defines the spaces. Defines the broken spaces. Lets one see the force of the creases. Every beam has its own dimension. A detail to be enjoyed in in bed. And just look at that column!
Wood, insulation, and synthetic jacket. Synthetic jacket. Synthetic roof sealing. Not as a technique any more. To be flat and out of sight. Now in sight too. To be seen. Abstraction. Helps the sense of volume.
