The interior renovation focused on upgrading the quality of the existing spaces with the use of locally available materials. The construction process involved the “undressing” of the existing structure to its basic core materials (brick, wood, reet, plaster), getting rid of many problematic materials introduced in numerous series of renovations. The second step was to dress the building again with locally available materials from structure to furniture (kitchen). The new material palette consists of wood as substructure and floor, miscanthus to insulate the floor against the basement, strawbales for the insulation of the attic; earth, lime and different sizes of sand for the natural plasters. The kitchen elements are all made from wood finished with linseedoil interior and exterior, all cupboards can be dismantled, no glue involved and able to be dismantled completely.
