Tearing down a slum house and replacing it by new house of 3,60m wide. The city is the client.
In a decrepit neighbourhood...the North of Antwerp.
The house as a public building: a transparant facade, a podium, and a staircase to the front.
A row house 3,60m wide.
A street facade which is simultaneously formal and informal.
A front door and a back door next to one another
A podium which allows for distance and proximity.
The staircase extends the scale of the small house.
An interior balcony on the top floor.
