The original building consisted of two floors and an attic, plus a courtyard that is separated from the street by a garden wall. The inner structure of the house was in a poor condition and the rooms were too small, so it was decided to keep only the facade and build a complete new structure in the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Vens VanbelleAn oak tree trunk was placed as new support structure in the middle of the pentagonal plan. The new upper floors were hung in a spiral movement between the existing exterior walls and this central support. This led to an open interior space without interior walls in the living areas. The tree was a logical and affordable solution, and it immediately gave the right atmosphere to the new home. The bathroom, kitchen, entrance and storage / laundry room were compiled in a vertical volume.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeThe ground floor is used as a studio by the owner, who is an artist, and the higher you go in the home, the more private the spaces becom.

The National Canine Defence League is one of the few that does. They give feedback on past donor support: “Our supporters made it possible last year for the NCDL to save more than 11,000 dogs – that’s over 27 dogs a day ! Every donation counts . . .”Note also the message you receive when first visiting the site: “Welcome to the e-commerce enabled NCDL site.” It certainly makes sense to work hard at putting site visitors at ease when it comes to encouraging them to use secure transaction facilities on a charity site.This message seems to be working towards that, but is it too full of jargon? Would it confuse as many visitors as it encouraged? Perhaps an alternative such as “Welcome to NCDL, where you can join 5,000 other dog-lovers in making secure online credit card donations in guaranteed safety” might work better.
