Villa in Sint-Martens-Latem

A dream home with a sense of style

The municipality of Sint-Martens-Latem in East Flanders / Belgium is a very special one: located near Gent, it is considered the origin of Flemish expressionism and also called the “artistic village”. Over the course of time, a lot of painters, sculptors and other artists chose this place to settle down. Not at all surprising, that is, since this small town with its roughly 8,400 inhabitants situated on the river Leie captivates the artistic imagination with its pristine landscape, dominated by open woodland and wide meadows. The one-family homes and villas in the municipality harmoniously blend in with the natural setting. Right there, the Belgian entrepreneur L.S., with the help of architect Ms. Sandra Schepers, made his dreams come true and built a secluded home with a sense of style amidst Flemish woodland.

Villa Luc Saey, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium

Project: Villa Luc Saey, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium

Building owner: Mr. Luc Saey

Planning / Architects: Ms. Sandra Schepers

Fabricator: Timmerman Productie NV

Completion: 2018

Inspiration from nature

The one-family home skilfully combines and reflects the colours and designs of its natural surroundings. In addition to the elegant, large heroal sliding doors, the architect paid special attention to the windows and their details: the aluminium windows made by heroal were installed in wooden frames. This combination is only one of the many exciting contrasts you can find in this building. The overall impression is a Frisian villa that perfectly blends in with the setting, from its reed roof to its window details. Thanks to the large glass surfaces and the use of aluminium, traditional and modern design elements merge in a unique and appealing way.

heroal window systems: bar by bar individual design

The owner of the building opted for custom-made windows from the window system heroal W 72 CW, which is both functional and flexible. Made from high-quality aluminium, they meet all demands on efficiency, sustainability and sophisticated design. These windows take up the customary lattice window design typical of the region and thus perfectly match the architectural style of the house. The noble colour of the sashes and frames, coated in RAL 9005 deep black with a fine structure, gives them a distinctive and at the same time subtle look. Another important focus was placed on the robustness of all building parts, given that the house is located near a lake. As an official GSB-Premium-Coater awarded with the quality seal „Approved Premium Coater – Sea Proof“, heroal offers systems that are very durable even under extreme conditions: our tried and tested highly weather resistant heroal hwr powder coating makes our window systems resistant against the sometimes rough weather conditions in East Flanders.

heroal sliding door systems: for comfort and design, inside and outside

For three large opening elements, the owner chose the aluminium lifting-sliding door system heroal S 77. It meets highest demands on constructional design, is easy to use and represents the ideal combination with the selected window system heroal W 72 CW. With open doors, the living space extends to the landscape beyond. Together with the 20 windows of the house, the closed doors provide for rooms flooded with light even in winter.
