As a young office based in Brussels, Bauclub is regularly required to study the ordinary local typology and therefore reflect on how to position itself in relation to its identified constraints and opportunities.
Berk is a transformation project of an apartment on the upper floors of a common building for a family of illustrators and their daughter.
It is an introverted intervention where only the movement of the staircase reveals the existing context (interior and exterior). This allows to free the rear façade and bring zenithal light into the vertical void created, a space often dimly lit. Due to the layout, a game of perspectives is drawn: horizontal, vertical and oblique planes and visual sequences are created throughout the apartment.
