The architect’s house, the home the architect builds for himself, is a tool more powerful than one would imagine at first. As being the client, as well as the designer, the architect has hardly any constraints during the design and construction process, besides his own wishes. He can use his own house for instance as a unique opportunity for a technological or architectural experiment and cultivate his sense of “entrepreneurial daring” to the fullest. The house can also become a manifest, a pilot project, a masterpiece or turning point in the architect his career. Thereby it represents the best possible business card within the profession.
The project team behind the website actively engages in the valorisation of architects' houses and (co-)creates and (co-)hosts several initiatives to reach and inform the broader public as well as the various stakeholders involved in the qualitative upkeep, renovation and restoration of architects' houses in order to safeguard these remarkable built artefacts for the future. architectshousesbrussels.be also keeps a close eye on various other publications, documentaries, press articles, upcoming events, etc. in relation to architects' houses. For all those interested to further explore these houses at first hand, this exploration page lists various activities and initiatives to discover architects' houses at your own pace: while reading with a cup of tea, by putting on your walking shoes, planning a guided visit or browsing the web. Enjoy!
