A pyramid-inspired shelter in Brussels

Bilt House is a fabulous modern dwelling which has been meticulously designed with the incorporation of several unique elements in Brussels, Belgium. With unique architectural finishes, furnishings and equipment throughout, this residence is presented as a comfortable living space for its owners. The Bilt House has been portrayed from different vantage points to showcase the home in a unique light by photographer Tim van de Velde. The facade of the home presents itself as a pyramid-inspired shell, sheltering stylish interiors that are warm and inviting. The property features a spacious floor plan with large windows and white washed walls that create a bright and airy feeling throughout.

Discovered on OWI, the description of the home is as follows, this house has a distinct, autonomous and geometrical design, by which it wants to dialogue with its environment. By its form, the house distinguishes itself from the environment, but also makes a dialogue through the open structure and by embedding itself into the soil. The pyramidal design gave the architect the chance to embody all these elements, although the first trigger of the design was of more practical nature. Building regulations told him to design a typical saddle roof. Bending the rules, this was his result. On the inside, the owner of the house made his own universe. Being an artist and a collectioneur of vintage design he meticulously gives all his objects the right place. The place is not overwhelmed, but has a nice collection of furniture, objects and exchanged pieces of art.
