Owner´s Tim Van Geloven & Ilse Cornelissens first started what is one of Antwerp´s most chic shopping & dining destinations. Since many of their guests often talked about liking what they saw so much they wanted to move in – the idea of making the two top floors of the building into an apartment for rent came up. With Vincent Van Duysen´s help this is the result. So beautiful and serene.

For the love of books

I´m currently working on five very fun interior projects and most of the clients are interested in finding a nice solution for their books. Bookshelves are not only for the books themselves but could be a display of all sorts of beautiful things. I´m always very inspired by these pics who keep coming back on my mood boards. The result with probably breathe that kind of air.
