In the beating heart of the city of Lokeren, Belgium, we invite you to come inside this spacious, private home where the application of natural and stimulating materials creates a powerful and vivacious interior.
Baeten Hylebos Architecten redesigned the existing floor plan of the apartment that was formed by a series of blindly connected rooms. A large entrance hall wasted precious space and the enclosed kitchen split the beautiful view in two.
The result is one contiguous space that connects the two façades and fills the apartment with light. The marble granules in the terrazzo elements reveal the colour palette used throughout the interior, and the colours of the applied steel windows, furniture in solid walnut, brass faucets and solid bronze door fittings play and interact with the natural material.
