Portrait of a HouseFrederik Vercruysse, a talented Berlin-based Photographer in collaboration with Buyse Seghers Architects have created this spectacular series taking this beautiful Victorian home as the subject. Determined to restore the house to its former glory but also ensure its future existence, they developed a multi-functional plan enabling different layouts and uses in time. Even though the building looks like one coherent structure, history learned that it developed organically as expansions were added over time. True to the past they adapted the house to its specific needs re-interpreting the old rather than bringing in the new. And again the house has found a new coherency – as if nothing ever changed.
