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.

Garden facade.

The staircase extends the scale of the small house.

An interior balcony on the top floor.
