Located within the “Golden triangle” of 3 famous squares in Brussels (Place Brugmann, Place Châtelain & Place Flagey), this exceptional atypical building is hidden from the street behind a Porte Cochère. Historically, it was a carpentry; the owners lived in the large Maison de maître on the street front.
10 years ago, the building underwent some important renovation work, including the restoration of the roughly 30 metre linear façade (architect Van Haren). However, the work was never finished and the building was abandoned.
A decade later, the building had become obsolete and inadequate for the needs of the current land-owners, a young family with children. Whilst perfectly preserving and enhancing this heritage building, a new permit was needed to radically transform the layout offering an abundance of light, exciting perspectives, spatial generosity and theatrical sequences.
