Residence LC is an interior project by architect Nils Van der Celen, situated in in Knokke Heist on the coast of Belgium.
For the project of this 125 m2 apartment, both the client and the designer wanted to create a serene relationship between the outside and the inside, with as few contrasting elements as possible. This results in a homogeneous concept, a peaceful and simple interior created through the use of natural yet high-quality materials.
The main material is a light oak wood veneer with a vertical grain, which contrasts with the brutal design of the ceramic stone and the colorful terrazzo.
The kitchen is conceived as one large furniture block with integrated the kitchen island and the dining table bench. The rear wall of the living area is covered with vertical wooden slats that give extra dynamism to an otherwise neutral wall. This concept extends into both bedrooms, with a focus on the master bedroom in which the bed is incorporated into a solid wooden piece of furniture that continues into the master bathroom.
In the children’s bathroom, the designer chose a terrazzo washbasin with different color flakes that refer to colors of shells and stones on the beach.
A custom-made pivot door with brass coating contains a lattice with different types of glass. This gives the apartment a unique and classy appearance which continues with the other brass accents such as the faucets, the sink and the blind-mounted shelf in kitchen splash back.
