This fantastic remodeling of two narrow houses that were in very poor condition, as they had been used by their former owner as a rental for students who needed cheap accommodation, was carried out in 2016 by the architectural firm K2A. The interior was designed by the firm Permis de Construire and Denis Dujardin was in charge of the gardens.
The property covers a total area of 500 square meters and is located in Brussels, Belgium. It is located in a prestigious and vibrant area of the city, in a basement with little insulation, with little air and little natural light inside. The project consisted in uniting the two houses while respecting the typology of the existing buildings and making the most of their new width to offer generous and luminous spaces to the new residents.
The front façade, a beautiful 19th century brick façade belonging to a row of similar houses, was restored and remained essentially intact. However, the large rear façade opened generously to encompass the south-facing garden.
There, wide glass doors open onto the wonderful garden where a dining room and an outdoor living area have been installed to spend time with friends and family while enjoying the good weather.
