About us

Shared passion for life’s beauty

A passion for authenticity, quality and the beautiful things in life. These are the values we want to share with our customers.

1. Holiday in your own garden or home

Why we are so motivated by exclusive oak buildings and outbuildings? Life is more than plain hard work. Beautiful old-timers, a good glass of wine, a day at the golf course, a stylish garden party with family and friends, relaxing in the sun by the pool and orangery...

Our exclusive oak garden rooms or extensions allow you to enjoy the outdoors even more. An oak extension doesn’t only enlarge your home, but it also lets in more natural light.

Each time your walk into our exclusive and authentic piece of craftsmanship, you’ll get that holiday feeling.

2. Almost 2,000 oak buildings in 20 year time

In Belgium, we are the pioneer in authentic English garden rooms, outbuildings and extension constructions. In 2016 we celebrated our 20th anniversary with almost 2,000 projects completed in the Benelux, Germany and France. Meanwhile Lannoo has published four editions of photo books about us. More information about our books.

Our story started in the early 90s when Peter Pollet discovered Heritage Buildings, an English construction company that has been making exclusive custom oak buildings, using traditional techniques, for over a century.

Thanks to Peter Pollet’s love for old-timers, he found the company through an advertisement in a specialised car magazine. A close working relationship formed after his first visit, resulting in Peter becoming the honoured agent for Heritage Buildings on the continent.

At the end of 2015, Peter Pollet decided to dedicate himself completely to his first love: old-timers. Walter Sanders joined the team as new CEO. He has years of experience in the marketing and building world. Together with employee Eline Cambier, Walter, Jan and Ieds are the close knit team behind Heritage Buildings.
