The Hedge House

Public Space
Rate this project: 

The Hedge House is a sensitive, serene building in the gardens of the Wijlre Castle, referring to the surrounding hedges. It’s combining seemingly disparate functions, like two greenhouses, a hen house, a tool shed, a kind of living room and even an exhibition space for art. The building itself is really a patch of the gardens and defining the fluenty character of the place.

“Art as part of life was the main purpose of the small house in the 17th-century pleasure garden belonging to Wijlre Castle.” – Wiel Arets Architects
