La Classe, an Old School Conversion in Belgium
By Eric • Jul 6, 2011 • Selected Work
La Classe is the name that owners Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux – both specialized in architectural photography – have chosen for this old village school they have converted into an accommodation for groups and seminars.
Located in the heart of Denée, a small village in Belgium, the 1863 building can now accomodate up to 21 people in seven bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.
“The interior combines high quality materials, space and simplicity. It has a very peaceful atmosphere” says Anne Leroux.
“All the paintings, objects and installations have a connection to the old school, but in a humorous way. Children go crazy when they see the school chairs hanging on the main wall of the kitchen!”
La Classe can be booked all year round, from €1,900 for a weekend to €3,120 for a full week.
