Country Houses (digital book only)
This book presents eight exceptional country houses that have been created or restored by Belgian architects and interior specialists.
The first example, recently built near Bruges in a classic eighteenth-century style, is based on a bishop’s country seat from 1750.
Next to be presented is an exclusive new country house in the green belt around
Antwerp, which is based on Little Thakeham, a famous design from 1902 by the English architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
Finca La Carrascosa, situated in Spain near Jerez de la Frontera (Seville), is a striking restoration project carried out by a Belgian couple who are interior specialists.
A historic farmhouse in the southern Netherlands, transformed into a contemporary country house in magnificent natural surroundings, has been refurbished by a Belgian interior decorator.
A stately country house in southwest Flanders has been renovated in a very serene and understated manner: a fascinating mix of classic architecture, contemporary interior design and modern art.
A house in Flemish Brabant dating back to 1642 with dépendances from the nineteenth century has been thoroughly restored to become a modern home.
An authentic mas in the Provence has been restored with a light touch and refurbished in the local style.
The book closes with the masterly restoration of a centuries-old country house in the French Périgord: just as in all the other projects, it demonstrates the creative brio with which Belgian architects and interior designers – both at home and abroad – achieve exceptional results.
