Brutalist Belgian home by Juliaan Lampens asks for €600k

Concrete is celebrated in all its forms at this Belgian property by eminent modernist Juliaan Lampens, which blends Jandi design elements with unapologetic brutalism in Flanders.

The 1981 Geraardsbergen house is a rough, uncoated concrete box with a free-flowing layout typical of Lampens’ buildings and clever use of half-height partitions that help ‘zone’ spaces while maintaining sightlines across the brutalist home.

Aside from floor-to-ceiling glass walls, which peek onto the garden, interior walls are built with raw concrete that’s left visible across the interiors. Concrete is also used to create some of the built-in furniture, including a colossal fireplace in the living room, while kitchen cupboards and cabinetry are made from Oregon pine and are all original.

ArchitectenWoning is listing House Merckaert for €595,000 and it’s been faithfully maintained by its owners in keeping with its pedigree. That said, there is room to refurbish elements of the property, namely the garden and driveways. The kitchen flows onto an exterior dining and lounging space, covered by a grand concrete awning.
