Architect Glenn Sestig’s modernist townhouse is for sale in Ghent

It’s no secret that the Belgian architect Glenn Sestig has an affinity with modernism: his work is characterised by geometric lines and minimalist precision.

In 2005, the Ghent-based architect acquired a modernist building designed by Raoul Van Houtte in 1937 that had been divided into apartments in the 1960s. With respect for the authentic grandeur of the building, Sestig has restored the Belgian property‘s original façade and converted it a single residence that exudes intimacy and warmth.

The three-bedroom Ghent property is spread over four floors and a robust concrete, stone and an earthy colour palette are used throughout. The ground floor and the top floor housing shared living spaces – and the latter has pivoting glass doors that lead out to a private balcony overlooking nearby trees.

Nearly 15 years on, Sestig is selling his beloved interbellum home – including its carefully chosen furnishings – via Carlo Eggermont, with price on application.
