when i went to antwerp, belgium a few years ago, i couldn’t help but notice the neoclassical influence in the architecture there. i was given a tour of the Cogels-Osylei neighborhood with gorgeous old gothic homes, once sitting in ruin, that had been restored to their original beauty by a community of locals artisans in the city who banded together to save them, and eventually occupy them. so when i saw this NEOCLASSICAL GALLERY HOME IN BELGIUM which also serves as a gallery in dwell’s newsletter this week it brought back all the memories of those Antwerpen homes, and my desire to have a peeked inside them. luckily dwell had access to this beauty so i’m finally getting that voyeristic itch scratched. visit dwell for the full story.

  1. Technically, this should be titled “A Belgian Dwelling”. Calling it A Belgium Dwelling is like calling a home “A America Dwelling”- doesn’t work.

    I’m Belgian btw :)
