Pieter Vanrenterghem offers a qualitative approach that results in different types of projects. Both renovations and new construction assignments are no stranger to the interior architect. In addition, 3D visualisations and building coordination are just some of his specialities. Without exception, the designs he presents to his clients are serene, clean and calm. Warm minimalism is an ideal way of describing the aesthetics of his personal universe.
Pieter Vanrenterghem's designed spaces consistently exude a sense of openness and understated luxury.In terms of colours, the interior designer stays true to neutral tones, while occasionally adding striking details that create a distinctive atmosphere.Given the high-end appeal of his work, it is no surprise that he has been running his own business for some 20 years.Over time, his austerity and simplicity have only grown stronger, which is a clear sign of a truly creative identity.We hope to enjoy his work for many years to come and are convinced that his designs have already left a lasting impression nationally and internationally.
Evoking a sense of openness and understated luxury
We like to take you to the Belgian coastline, where a residence is imbued with the welcoming warmth of a nuanced material palette. For example, architect Pieter Vanrenterghem created a well-crafted family home for a couple, their three children and their beloved pet dog. The homeowner had grown up on the Belgian coast and was keen to return to his roots with his own young family of five children in tow. They wanted to use the house first as a holiday home and later as a permanent home. Thus, a thoughtful layout and design was needed where a sense of timelessness would prevail, so that the house would age beautifully while continuing to provide space for its growing occupants over the years. In short, with this modern approach to the Flemish ideals of sculptural simplicity and humility, Pieter softened the architecture by applying an earthy, nuanced material palette. To emphasise the tactility of the material, Vanrenterghem chose to finish most of the house with a cream-coloured lime plaster on the walls. A central, raw concrete staircase makes a nod to Brutalism and is softened by the surrounding light grey oak floorboards.
