Town House by Sculpt [IT] – Dwelling with Largest Pivoting Door

Town House with largest pivoting door - Sculpt IT

Designed and renovated by Antwerp-based Sculpt [IT] Architecten, the spectacular Town House ensure a great relationship between exterior and interior.

The architect’s description: A town house ready for the next century. The façade keeps its historical function and bourgeois radiance, neatly in line. The contrast with the rear is ample. All incorrect additions are replaced by a unit of space and light. Daylight and contact with the garden are introduced. The simple, contemporary glass rear has the world’s largest pivoting window – 3 meters wide by 6 meters high – and makes this house ready for the future. Bell etage, so no connection on the same level with the garden.

Clients wanted to have that connection and a more modern approach in connection with the old details. We broke down the rear part of the building to make this connection on the same level, and give the house a nice view to the garden from the different floors. We wanted to make also a connection with the different floors. This happened wit a triplex in the new built rear extension.

Fitzroy Terrace, Residential Alteration and Addition by Taylor Knights

Fitzroy Terrace is an intricate re-working of a previously run-down double-storey terrace in the gritty, northern fringes of Fitzroy. The design itself represents a real ‘obscuring’ between the old and the new through the deliberate play of thresholds and vertical journeys through the internal spaces.
