François Lichtlé & Nicolas Schimp & K2A
The heritage house, located in a prestigious residential neighbourhood of Brussels, dating from the end of the Art-deco movement, needed to be entirely refurbished. The brief also required that an extra floor be added to accommodate the growing family. Finally, it was also required that the house responds to the strictest norms in terms of isolation, heating, building automation,…
The present configuration offers 3 rooms that are aligned –one after another- quite typical for the typology of this type of building. The central part of the building thus has very little natural daylight. K2A propose to use this space to install a vertical “sculpture” (the staircase) offering dynamic perspectives within the house.
