It is the ground floor that contains the open living space with the kitchen and dining area sitting next to one another. A small patio and a light well next to the staircase bring in the much needed sunlight and give the interior a breezy relaxing appeal.

The distinctive design of the residence came about by combining the homeowners’ desire for a multi-generational home that will serve them well for years to come with the vision of the architects that tapped into the 17-degree slope of the lot. It is the ground level that contains the sparkling glass-walled central kitchen dining and living space that flows into the green garden and pool area outside.
Even though it is hard to look beyond the intricately and expertly designed series of water features the home itself presents a spacious open living area on the lower level with the private quarters nestled on the top floor.
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.
