About Jan Olieslagers
Discovering a Hidden Gem of Light and Liveliness
Behind a modest facade lies an explosion of light and liveliness, offering both safety and generosity. The spacious entrance hall connects service chambers such as restrooms, storage spaces, and office spaces while seamlessly linking daytime and nighttime functions.
Transitioning from Public Spaces to Intimate Areas
A prominent translucent steel door facilitates the transition from public life to intimate spaces. Beyond this door, areas like the living space, kitchen, and dining room are subtly distinguished by variations in ceiling height, materiality, and architectural details.
Emphasizing Space with Glazed Timber Framing and Wooden Beams
A glazed timber framing accentuates the dining area, highlighting the perfect spot for the dining table. Long wooden beams and a wall cabinet set the stage for the inviting seating area, creating an engaging and easy-to-read interior space.
