'Open, calm and functional', those were the wishes for this new home in the green belt around Antwerp, where a family of five resides. Interior designer Jessy Van Gorp has, with the use of natural materials, a calm colour palette and a strategic design, brilliantly completed this assignment.
Our partner Jessy Van Gorp is a skilled interior designer who focuses on high-end residential, professional and commercial interiors. She mainly creates warm, tactile spaces that radiate a sense of serenity and purity. Natural materials and strong lines are also often found in her interiors. Her priority is to create an environment where the client feels happy and at home. She will therefore always invest a lot of time in her clients and their specific needs, to guarantee an optimal, personalised result.
The balance between the natural elements and the clean, simple furniture gives the house a pure character.
Also for in this project, the interior designer has carefully taken the family's wishes into consideration. They requested that the same rural atmosphere of the outdoor environment would be present in the interior. To achieve this, Van Gorp used natural materials, such as European oak and natural stone, and earthy, calm colours. The balance between these natural elements and the clean, simple furniture gives the house a pure character. In addition, openness and functionality were important factors for the family. Van Gorp therefore ensured that the spaces were designed in such a way that the house could be opened up completely, allowing everyone, everywhere in the house, to be connected. The staircase was also given an aesthetic character, making it part of the living space and the interior. In addition, they wanted the entrance hall to not feel like a traditional hall, but rather like a flow-through space. The architect fulfilled this wish by making the front door out of oak planks, so that it blends into the wall, where the cloakroom and the guest bathroom are also located. Finally, the house is equipped with a Japanese bath or “ofuro”, in which the family can fully relax. In short, Van Gorp has succeeded in combining her vision and style with the specific wishes of the clients. The result is an aesthetically pleasing, calming and open interior, where the family can come home to in total comfort and tranquillity. This project is another demonstration of Van Gorp’s expertise and we can't wait to see what the architect will create in the future.
