Stunning chapel reconverted into a Belgium loft

This stunning chapel is situated in the quaint Flemish village of Bazel, Belgium and has been reconverted into two loft-type houses. This building was erected in the second half of the 19th century by Countess Villain XIIII next to the castle of Wissekerke as a place where the children of the village could be educated. The building later became derelict was sold and renovated into a residence. On the ground floor, you can find home offices, with windows overlooking the back garden. In the entrance hall, you still experience the grandeur of the architecture. The owners have kept the space quite open here, which makes the originally monumental and religious character of the building still tangible. The facade and especially the windows are so monumental that the rest of the architecture is logically subordinate to both this image and to the convenience of daily life. Have a look at the loft of Antoon, Natascha and their two children and let us know what you think!
