    Ghent-based practice NU Architectuuratelier have refurbished this two-storey house in the suburbs of Leuven in Belgium. Isn’t it just glorious? So simple and refined, with loads of personality. And can we please talk about that stair cascading down in front of the double height window? A bit of a died-and-gone-to-heaven moment, no? The graphic black lines of the staircase are carried through in the detailing of the balustrade and sliding steel-framed glass doors that act as a divider between the public and the private areas of the house. The overall feel is pared back, rational and reduced to bare essentials, with the red floor acting as a perfect dose of the unexpected.

    NU Architectuuratelier is the working platform for intense architecture and experimental development, led by Armand Eeckels and Halewijn Lievens. Founded in 2004, the ambition of NU is to question, develop and affirm in close interaction with its clients, matters of space, material, landscape and design to contribute to our social and mental environment. In a great variety of realized and approved commissions, its intense approach has resulted in specific projects, with significant value and meaning. The office pursues tactile and experimental architecture in combining both large and small size projects in its practice, and to turn functional expectations into inspirations.
