The living room reveals the home’s original character with detailed mouldings and skirting.
The three-storey home features a lower level complete with sauna, massage room, gym and a fifteen-metre long pool. Above, the entire first floor is designed for a master bedroom, accompanied by a generous dressing room, marble bathroom and study spaces. The kitchen, living and dining areas found on the upper level, adopt a contemporary style. Drenched in natural light, they enjoy access to a deck and views of the verdant garden below through floor-to-ceiling glazing that draws the outside within. As in the communal areas, the lower-level indoor pool also shows JUMA Architects’ devotion to natural light.
While JUMA Architects sought to create a modern home, they were careful to respect the home’s original mouldings, fireplaces and stairwell. Project DT reveals a balance of complementary old and new interior features, from the traditional stairwell railing to the bronze island bench in the kitchen. Herringbone flooring finds its way into nearly every space, with exception to the soft grey and white Carrara marble in the bathroom, nodding to the home’s historic character.
Project DT sees a Brussels manor return to a former grandeur while capturing JUMA Architects’ classic and minimalist eye through sensitive detailing and notable design pieces.
The front facade sets the tone for the elegant interiors within.
