On the former estate of a Benedictine abbey, near Leuven in Brabant, Belgium, sits a modernist villa built by Jacques Dupuis and Albert Bontridder in 1965.
The top Belgian architects designed the home for doctor Van Den Schrieck and his wife. The heritage-protected building has been put on the market by their heirs for €2.7m via Architectenwoning.
Villa Van Den Schrieck, a seven-bedroom, three-bathroom bungalow comprises two parallel wings – one for living, one for sleeping – topped with geometric flat roofs of different inclines. Seen from the garden, the expressive whitewashed western façade is crowned with two dark slate boxes.
All the floors are of blue limestone, and throughout the house, bespoke wooden furniture can be found – free-standing as well as built-in – that ties together the interconnected spaces.
