Some time ago I came across this 500m² home in Brussel online and could not keep my eyes of the amazing wall finishes! According to the project website from K2a architects, the home were once 2 very narrow houses that were in poor condition. They were exploited by an owner who would rent out individual rooms to students.
The front façade, a beautiful 19th century brick façade belonging to a row of similar houses was restored and was essentially left untouched. The big façade however was opened generously to embrace the garden facing south. More images at the website of K2a Architects.
