Folding Box by sculp[IT]architects:

“Close to the up and coming De Coninckplein in Antwerp we find a large, enclosed property. This particular house shares the discomforts we see in so many other attached buildings. In its original state, the house did not live up to the standards of comfortable living as they evolved over the last 50 years.

For this reason the laundry room, kitchen, toilet, porch and other areas were extended towards the garden like malicious cells on an aging body. These and other eyesores were stripped from the building to get back to a more pure, almost naked structure.

A full and thorough renovation on all floors optimizes the available space and introduces contemporary functionality. The playful orangery in the back of the building opens up towards the garden as a restrained but elegant box.”
