For the second edition of (t)huiswerk (where we portray an architect’s own home), we visited Jan de Muynck. You can read the article here on page 19, but I’ll give you a short explanation about the concept of his house. Three of the facades are more or less closed, only the facade facing the neighbouring house is entirely open. This radical decision has it’s influence on the inside of the house of course, which I hope you can see in the photos.
Hallway on the topfloor, on the left side you see the children’s rooms, which are extremely small and get their daylight through a sky light. The hallway is very wide and functions as an extension of the children’s rooms, they play in the hallway and find privacy in their small rooms.

This time, I photographed my friend Liesbeth’s place for the ‘Op Visite’ article in Unité (page 31). Her interior consists of vintage finds, things found on small markets and in charity shops, and family pieces. The beautiful painting is by Nele Tas, and is rented through ‘Kunst op Kot’.
The second edition of our Unité magazine is out! You can read it here (only in Dutch) and I will tell you more about the articles I worked on soon!
