Minimalissimo

CS House is an elegant Belgium home defined by a palette of black and white. The home has a rather traditional exterior and floorplan, but that did not stop Nicolas Schuybroek Architects from turning the interior into a modern marvel. No detail is overlooked: from the warm grain of the floor to the effortless drop of the pendant lights.

Au Robey, les designers ont fait des miracles. Il y a des parois de verre et de métal entre les lits et les salles d'eau. Il y des plaids gris perle et des murs taupes qui habillent vos pénates de sensualités sombres. Tandis que le mobilier, du rez-de-chaussé jusqu'au rooftop, travaille une veine moderniste sans écueils ni trop-plein.
