Rusted Steel Fins Define the Interior and Exterior of the Corten House in Belgium
Interesting use of Corten Steel, but I’m sure it was time consuming to construct.
Belgian architectural firm DMOA Architecten put a clever spin Corten steel in this three-story house located in Antwerp, Belgium. Named after the brand of pre-rusted steel, the Corten House shows how vertically oriented steel dividers can define indoor and outdoor space, as well as create a sense of enclosure while maintaining porosity. The house is particularly beautiful at dusk, when the Corten material glows a red, rusty hue and the steel dividers cast a pattern of shadows.
