Before and after; a black and white peek inside before or during works, and the result, in colour, under it. Each time the photo is taken from more or less the same angle. Average preparation time for a project is between three and six months, subsequent works take between three and six months on average as well. I like taking pictures, all photos on this page and on this website are by me.
An extension to a terraced house in Wimbledon. The new roof was insulated from above, with the beams and slats visible from the inside. Window frames, traditional division, in wood, to go with the house.
A single-story, terraced, split-level house in Amsterdam from the 1960s, with an original conversation pit. New windows and roof insulation. Access to the lower sitting pit was moved to the centre.
What to do with a 1930s bathroom, when you want to keep the style but everything has to be replaced, including all drains, piping and cabling? We kept the old window, and the rest is new, a mix of contemporary and retro design with an overall 1030s feel. 1920s industry inspired taps from Lefroy Brooks, Aluminium strips around shelving as seen in the art deco Villa Cavrois in Lille.
Made to measure, Z-shaped cupboard, stretching over 14 metres, from living room into kitchen. It incorporates a sliding door, an invisible door, a radiator, four niches and two rounded corners. Vertical doors in the kitchen, in the living area a mix of irregular horizontal and vertical doors to break the rigidity.
This floor in a beautiful Brussels town house was occupied by an NGO. It needed an update, things were literally falling apart. We did a low budget renovation, re-arranged the lay-out with a separate meeting room and a chill area. We took out the double internal doors to create a hub of six work stations.
