Oscar V opens its inspiration space "Atelier Oscar V" in one of the most prestigious streets in the heart of Mechelen. This intimate space will be the place where their clients and visitors will be fully immersed in the villa builder's signature style and approach.
The team at Oscar V places enormous importance on craftsmanship, durable materials, textures and exclusive finishes in every design. And that is what you can experience in their atelier. "Clients will feel our special love for craftsmanship and authenticity here," we hear Wim Vriesacker, general manager at Oscar V. Their exclusive villa construction & renovation stands for quality architecture with a signature that maintains timelessness, authenticity and the ultimate home feeling as the priorities. In 2013, it became part of Groep Verelst, a leading construction group that originated from Verelst Industriebouw in Putte. Meanwhile, the villa builder is known for its exclusive designs with distinctive signatures. Choosing this party is choosing a total approach. The villa designs meet all the requirements of contemporary living comfort and are individualistic, original and fully customised. The team will gladly assist you in building or renovating your exclusive rural or modern villa project. Their villas are designed taking into account contemporary requirements such as comfort, light, location, volume, open structures and high ceilings. Their work provides not only a luxurious look but also a luxurious experience. The villas are characterised by open structures, beautiful volumes with high ceilings and an apt attention to detail. The designers develop a sense of proportions, materials, textures, warmth and detailing. Key words of their approach are simplicity, calm, harmony, serenity, clarity and, undeniably, luxury, taste and refinement down to the smallest details. Their brand-new atelier in Mechelen complements this nicely.
Experience and inspiration space in all its facets
The choice to open Atelier Oscar V in Sint-Katelijnestraat in Mechelen was very natural. On the one hand, the city has a very central location and dynamic character, making it the ideal place to receive clients. On the other hand, it has been home to countless artisans such as painters, sculptors and also bell founders for centuries. Located in one of the main approach roads, the street further also boasts beautiful facades which lent itself to the most ideal location to establish their studios. This inspiration space will ensure that customers can fully immerse themselves in the company's style and approach. More than that, this brand new experience space will translate their particular love for craft and authenticity. "We work exclusively bespoke from the first sketch to the last hinge, everything is designed and made in-house with love for the craft," we hear. In this sense, the company almost takes on an artisanal character. Thus, the Atelier starts from the principle of a craft workshop. It is a place where Oscar V's craftsmanship is displayed in all its facets. In the workshop, there is a separate sample room that best substantiates that idea. There, customers can discover a thoughtful selection of materials, products and finishes. The atelier offers an inspiring view of the ambitious company's artisanal minimalism. On the outside, the building looks like a sleek white volume, although inside it is then typically designed according to the Oscar V signature. This is characterised by authentic and tactile materials, tone-on-tone colours, subtle textures, rounded shapes and meticulous detailing. One thing immediately stands out; the architecture and interior are completely in harmony. "A villa with us is a total concept. We don't just want people to see that, but to really experience it with all their senses," says Nathalie Delronge, Manager at Oscar V. That's what they want to convey to their visitors and is the main ambition for this intimate place. Photography by Stephanie Mathias
