A spacious mansion in Antwerp's belle epoque district of Zurenborg is being converted in 2 phases.
In the first phase, the attic will be transformed into children's rooms, and in the second phase the rear extension will be replaced. Between these phases two, a giant bookcase will also be designed and built.
Everything in this house is grand.
In the children's attic, three bedrooms with mezzanine are organised behind a house-wide closet wall. What remains is a children's lounge connected to the sleeping mezzanines via a large window on the closet.
On the ground floor, the familiar Belgian-style extension is replaced by a sober, elegant variant using recup marble from Brussels' former North Station. We create a massive, monolithic sculpture in which benches, countertop and kitchen furniture come together.
