Renovation of a family house

2016 to 2018
(3D) Andreea Irimia
This small home is located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Saint Gilles in Brussels. The house was in a derelict state and needed to be fully renovated. One of the main challenges of the project is its proximity to the historical government house. As this is a listed property, all adjoining homes have to scrupulously respect an “aesthetic modesty”…
The clients, a young couple, wanted to fully refurbish the property in a contemporary manner, restructuring all the spaces and adding an important extension on the back of the house. The front façade is partially replaced by a 2 story glass curtain wall offering privileged perspectives and an abundance of natural light.
