Narrow House

  • Seeing the scribbles of an architect, to the outside viewer may not exactly imitate the final product. Good thing the architect knows what is in his head and his heart, even if it looks nothing like what is on paper. In this case it’s a narrow house in a small city called Bilzen, near the Holland frontier. Bassam El Okeily’s first house.

    The ground floor of the house is closed from view but the upper portion is transparent in glass. A very interesting feature is the display window which reveals two balconies in skewed positions projection from a white facade. As if they were to drop off unexpectedly.

    The lower balcony contains a reading corner for a library, with a sheltered view of the street. The upper balcony accommodates an artist’s studio. Blue light turns the facade into a spectacular light sculpture after dark.
