This listed interbellum house dates back to 1926. It was constructed in neo-classical style and is part of the protected historic ‘Miljoenenkwartier’ quarter, that was shaped by the World Expo in Ghent.
Apart from some unfortunate interventions at the back, the building has been fairly well preserved and still holds a lot of its original charm. Therefore our main ambition was to respect the most valuable authentic building elements, whilst thoroughly reshaping the building into a modern multi-family house, as we were commissioned to do.
Through continuous communication with all involved parties, we succeeded in designing a widely supported project that capitalizes on the unique historical architectural qualities, and ads modern and more sustainable architectural value to the existing building. In this way we created a high-end residency containing three separate housing units: Two fully accessible one bedroom apartments on the top floors, and a luxurious duplex home on the lowest floors, consisting of very luminous belle-etage living quarters and a master-bedroom opening onto the garden.
