In an apartment in a former abbey, we were asked to create a two bedroom student flat. On the ground floor we’ve added a small semi-transparent bookcase to create more harmony in the living room. The kitchen took on a more pronounced shape, following the sloping line of a wall in the living space.

In the large bedroom, we created an extra en-suite bathroom, making the apartment more functional for two individuals. We’ve kept as much original elements as possible, such as the pointed arch in the night hall.

Project in collaboration with Dries Otten.
