Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp started out as a chic dining and shopping destination, and as the guests kept saying they wanted to move in, the owners turned their upstairs apartment into a hotel. Inspired by the architect’s own home, they asked Vincent Van Duysen to realize the project.
The innovative concept is described by Van Duysen as ’A collection of curiosities where each and every floor tells a story. It’s an idea, but also a sensory location that keeps on evolving as it grows.’
Graanmarkt 13 is created as a welcoming and warm home, where everyone should feel at ease with a restaurant, a shop, a gallery space and an apartment all under one roof. Quite a remarkable concept, don’t you think?
