Discover this renovated farmhouse in Belgium, a half-hour from Lille.
In its purity, “De Heerlijkheid van Marrem” (The Lordship of Marrem) has been transformed into a luxurious guest house.
All the original features have been retained and some recycled materials were added. This harmonious feel is created by the uses of natural materials such as lime, wood, flax, cotton. The range of colors goes from chalky white to shades of gray / sand.
The guesthouse can accommodate 20 to 23 people. In each room you can find antique furnitures from France and Italy.
Nathalie and Dominique welcome you to feel “at home away from home”!

ÁBATON, a spanish design & architecture studio, has developed a mobile house, ideal for 2 people, easily transported by road and ready to be placed almost anywhere.
The proportions are the result of a thorough study by the architects’ team so that the different spaces are recognizable and the feeling indoors is one of fullness. It is a simple yet sturdy construction made of materials chosen to provide both comfort and balance. ÁPH80 embodies the principles and objectives of ÁBATON: wellbeing, environmental balance, and simplicity.
ÁPH80 has 3 different spaces measuring 27 sq mt (9×3): a living-room/kitchen, a full bathroom and double bedroom. Its gabled roof is 3,5mts high indoors. Most of the materials can be recycled and meet the sustainable criteria that ÁBATON applies to all its projects. It blends in with the environment thanks to its large openings that bring the outdoors inside. The use of wood throughout the building not only adds calmness and balance but it is also hypoallergenic. The sourced wood comes from regulated forests (will regrow to provide a wide range of other benefits such as further carbon storage, oxygen generation and forest habitat).
Technical Data: The outside is covered with grey cement wood board. Ventilated façade with 12cm thermal insulation around the building. Solid timber structure manufactured through numerical control; Inside timber panels made of Spanish Fir Tree dyed white. ÁPH80 has been designed and manufactured fully in Spain. Manufacturing time: 4-6 weeks.
Assemby time: 1 day.
Transportation by road.
Price: from 32.000€
The team is currently developing simpler series which can be added to the ÁPH80 to suit every particular need, creating larger spaces and contributing to the project’s versatility.
