Refurbishment of 3 Historical Buildings / Bovenbouw + Barbara Van Der Wee Architects

We regard renovations as exercises in empathy. In the renovation of the eclectic buildings in the Leysstraat in Antwerp, we used a lot of empathy to give a nineteenth century building a second breath. Behind the flamboyant, eclectic fac?ade, a whole series of uninteresting rooms were hidden. In the design we try to eliminate the schizophrenia between a masterly fac?ade and a meager interior.
