Belgian interior architects Atelier 10.8 have designed the minimalist rural retreat ‘Flanders Farmhouse’, where bespoke details are intrinsic to the design.

Situated in the north of Belgium, this rural home for a young family is a testament to Belgian minimalist design. Abundant with natural light, the interior features a considered selection of neutral, warm tones and textured materials. The interior architects worked closely with the owners throughout the project, responding to a brief that asked for a modern interior harnessing elements of its rural setting. In this open-plan layout, the purposeful lack of interior doors and walls encourages the experience of the space as a whole. Material elements are utilized to suggest a separation of spaces—herringbone wooden flooring is paired with natural stone, indicating the transition from corridor to dining area. The color of the kitchen joinery is intentionally matched to that of the surrounding walls, allowing this focal element to effortlessly blend into the space and to not overwhelm it. Each of these design features showcases the thoughtful attention to detail that is evident throughout; soft curving edges of the walls add a softness to the spaces, simultaneously highlighting the seamless quality of the interior. In the bathroom, natural stone in velvet green offers a visual connection to the verdant surroundings. Throughout the interior, these material elements have been skilfully chosen to root the sophisticated, minimalist family home in its unique rural setting.
