C Penthouse is a minimal residential apartment project in Antwerp, Belgium, designed by Vincent Van Duysen. The concept of the project was to create an ‘urban loft’ that retains the rawness of construction, yet encompasses a complete finish and feeling of comfort.
The concrete ceiling and rough timber refer to the historical warehouses, which have an architectural presence in the surrounding quay and the city. The project has strong architectural qualities within a residential apartment context. The sculptural architectonic approach corresponds to the Abstract Expressionist art collection of the owner.
