MK House is a minimal residence located in Antwerp, Belgium, designed by Nicolas Schuybroek Architects. The Belgian architect began his career in Montreal, Canada but for the last five years Nicolas has been working as project director for Vincent Van Duysen in Antwerp, handling various high-end architecture projects in Belgium and beyond. This lineage is important as Vincent Van Duysen is one of a handful of the most significant Minimalists of our time and the impact of his time there is clearly evident.
The spaces feature herringbone flooring with neutral coloured accents. The kitchen is particularly unique as it uses stone for the counter and cabinetry. This joinery feels monolithic, as if the kitchen has been carved from a single block. Polished plaster and white wash timber adds to this luxurious palette of materials.
Careful detailing is applied everywhere, from the monolithic vanities in the bathrooms to furniture pieces with warm textures. Icons such as Gio Ponti dining chairs and Serge Mouille lamps assist in creating a neutral, calm, sophisticated environment.
