In the 9th century, the Graafjansdijk (dike) protected parts of France and Belgium agaist the storm tides from the North Sea and the Western part of the river Schelde. Currently only a short strip of this dike remains in the rural surroundings of the seaside village of Knokke, near the border with Holland.

 

Across the road from the Graafjansdijk is the narrow plot, enclosed by an adjacent moat on the north side. The terrain overlooks an open meadow. This geographical context has a major impact on how the design of the villa was perceived.
