This compact apartment in the heart of Brussels, Belgium serves as a second residence for a Singapore-based owner. The mix of classical architectural moves and decorative elements with contemporary craftsmanship, detailing, and finishes yields a space that is simultaneously structured yet unpretentious. Stef Claes, the designer, included subtle nods to the owner's Eastern roots while making sure the residence feels firmly rooted in its European context.
