Love cocoon issue II

Before the complete renovation, this house in the Grotehondstraat in Antwerp used to be a law firm. Located in one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods of Antwerp where stately art déco mansions and energetic young families intertwine, it was almost obvious that this office space would become a warm nest for loving family. Jackie Bohème opened up the space, which was previously an array of small rooms, to let the light in and let the air flow. The kitchen is located at the street side of the house, which means you can retreat in the quiet living space on the back of the house. On the first floor, you’ll find an enclave for the parents with the master bedroom, bathroom and balcony. The second bathroom is located at a mezzanine between the first and second floor. Kids have free play on the second floor with two extra bedrooms.
