Description:

“Artipool transformed this former bakery into a bright and airy home. Because the spacious residence is fully enclosed, the designers introduced a number of interventions to allow maximum light penetration: a double height living space, a skylight above the kitchen and huge windows with thin profiles.

From inside you have a magnificent view of the church. Artipool created a diagonal line in the rectangular building to optimise the view outside. Furthermore, you also have a less cramped feel. You hardly notice that you are in a townhouse, surrounded by walls.

Deliberate contrasts between materials make the interior exciting and lively. Unique design pieces are given a prominent place.

Via floating metal stairs along a beautiful concrete wall you reach the mezzanine. The fluorescent ceiling lights were hung in a zigzag pattern. Imagine the fascinating light show that takes place here.

The glass floor brings you to the rear area of the upper floor. Here is a minimalist bathroom. The shiny floors and walls seamlessly flow into the sleeping zone. On the wall behind the bed, the black leather look wallpaper creates an intimate atmosphere.”
