Into the woods

When a piece of architecture sits
comfortably in its environment,
this is not necessarily a matter of literal
equivalences. It can be the consequence
of an accumulation of details of texture,
line and surface. In this clearing in the
woods in Belgium, the myriad greyscale
tones contained in the planes of a new
residential building, currently under
construction, sit in quiet dialogue with
the infinite variations of green present
in the surrounding foliage.
