Selected Projects by Belgian Interior Architect Arjaan de Feyter.
Belgian architect Arjaan De Feyter brands his work as ‘architecture for the soul’. His minimal designs, stripped of unnecessary embellishment, hone in on pure materials with strong attention to detail.
With a penchant for peculiar spaces, including a converted malt distillery and a series of old silos, we’ve gathered a few of our most favourite projects by De Feyter. Get across them!
Office ADF // A dark stained timber boardroom table is perhaps our favourite striking feature within Office ADF, but there are a few to choose from, which is understandable considering this is De Feyter’s own office. As well as housing his team, the space doubles as a benchmark display of the firm’s signatory sophisticated style. The double height windows flanked by wispy linen curtains, as emulated in Cube Office, make an appearance, as do the black steel framed glass panels that border offshoot meeting rooms. The bathroom, clad entirely with natural stone and featuring a corner bathtub, is among the nicer we’ve seen in a workplace. We guess relaxing baths aren’t the worst idea to incorporate into the corporate world, right?
Cube Office for Boutique Law Firm // Antwerp law firm Deknudt Nelis instructed De Feyter to make their office look just like his very own studio. Occupying a refurbished malt factory, Feyter settled on warm materials that radiate confidence and unity for the 140 sqm space. A minimal colour palette and whitewashed surfaces contrast slabs of dark green marble with prominent white veins, used for kitchen bench tops and splashback, and to line the back of a full-height display unit in the boardroom. Dark oak motifs and walnut desks in senior offices pay subtle homage to the English banking system, whereby solidarity and wealth reign supreme. Luxurious elements such as a tiered polished brass pendant light and dark green curtains that drape over double height windows add a touch of drama. Glass panelling rather than solid walls help to keep the space feeling light irrespective of dark materiality and finishes.
