An apartment on the second floor of a typical sixties apartment block, alongside the “Leie” river in the historical centre of Ghent (B).

Demolition of typical division in small rooms in order to create a wide space for living. Combination of sixties elements (materials and colours) and current needs. The seating, dining and cooking area are organized into one fluent space in which curved walls guide and define these zones. Looking from the seating area, the kitchen feels like a sculpture. This living area continues in the master bedroom with adjacent semi-open bathing area. The apartment has a total length of +/- 21 m back to front.

From the one end in the master bedroom the view is directed towards the windows in the front façade looking over the river. The linear ceiling lights guide this spatial sequence and create a totally different atmosphere at night. The main living and sleeping area bask in a white colour palette. Mirrors on the wall of cupboards widen the space. The other spaces (shower room, spare room, entrance with cloakroom) are painted in soft colours (blue, pink, yellow), contrasting with custom designed furniture in dark oiled oak. The wall colours are repeated in these cupboard interiors. The insides are dark blue, pale blue, old pink or dark yellow.
