Textual content description supplied by the architects. On the positioning of the previous Wivina monastery in Groot-Bijgaarden, on the border of the walled property, stood a dilapidated tenant home. A single-story home with a gable roof and small outbuildings. An accompanying entrance pavilion allowed for personal entry via the monastery wall. The entire is a part of the protected heritage website of the monastery, which needed to stay intact in the course of the renovation.
On the similar time, there was a have to create a distance from the walkers within the public monastery backyard.

In that means, a patio was created inside the current partitions of the home, which created the specified distance to the general public area, and a brand new room was created on the opposite aspect of the home amidst the encircling greenery.
Whereas the start line of the renovation is a seemingly easy gesture, it concurrently leads to a nuanced weiterbauen on the present tenant home.
