BELGIUM-BASED…

architect Olivier Dwek has been described as “A virtuoso of volumetrics, an alchemist of light, [and a] shape[r of] interiors that have the aura of a museum and at the same time cultivate a spirit of conviviality, comfort and ergonomic innovation.”Combining this with his passion for clean lines, monumental structures, contemporary art, and exceptional materials, Dwek’s work exhibits a character unmistakably his own. Standing as stunning testament to Dwek’s unique point of view, is his recently completed work on a 19th century Brussles townhouse…

DRAMATIC…

in its restraint, the grand home’s interior combines three distinct stylistic periods in a spartan-like symphony.

CLASSICAL…

elements such as moldings, fireplaces, wide archways and windows were meticulously maintained or replicated to preserve the spirit of the historic home.

MID CENTURY…

modern furnishings and accessories take center stage with artfully placed sofa and chairs by Pierre Jeanneret, stools, chaise and accent seating by Charlotte Perriand, a coffee table by George Nakashima and ceramics by Georges Jouve.

CONTEMPORARY…

alterations and additions bring a fresh energy to the home; with new openings imbuing rooms with a 21st century flow, and flawlessly selected art punctuating its 19th century surrounds.

TO COMPLETE…

his interlacing of past and present, Dwek extended the original balustrade up a second level with an identical reproduction. The resulting lace of bold wrought iron beautifully highlights the designer’s vision – threading together three centuries of architecture and design in perfect balance.
