Color is a rarity inside this transformed Belgian home with warm wooden tones providing the necessary contrast even while playing into the overall ‘modern-minimal’ look. The rejigged floor plan places the kitchen in the spacious attic with the bedroom and bathroom on the lower level opening up towards the pool and garden area.
This remarkable contemporary makeover in takes the latter route as an old Victorian brickmaking factory on was converted into a fabulous multi-level residence that combines amazing textural contrast with refined urban living.
It is the ground floor that houses the open plan living area along with a small dining space and a fabulous kitchen with a beautiful marble island. The use of diverse materials and finishes such as marble concrete timber and metal throughout the house ushers in some much needed visual and textural contrast in an otherwise monotonous space.
The master bedroom and kids’ bedroom are situated on the second floor with the third floor containing additional guest spaces and an entertainment zone. The top level features a fabulous roof garden and home library / workspace and also gives the homeowners a perfect private relaxation zone.
On the outside the seems just like another of these modest residences that has been squeezed into a bustling urban scene. But step inside and you will find a surprisingly cheerful and light-filled interior that works around the constraints of the lot and manages to create an inviting and pleasant ambiance.
