Description: "People living in the upper parts of very high buildings have more intense sensations than other people. The hours, the seasons, nature are closer to them. The sun, the wind, the rain, the clouds have a much closer impact on them. They are both from the earth and from the sky."This sentence, originating in the constructive optimism of the thirties describes in part the specific charm of this conceptual apartment.

Designed by a young but renown Belgian architect in the latter nineties on an existing unit from 1968 with a very clear idea in mind which he called maxFUS. Modular blocks on wheels are the walls inside the apartment.

"Put everything needed for living and working in the walls to obtain maximum FUS meaning free undefined space. Open parts of the walls for living or working. Close the walls afterwards to re maximize FUS. Minimize furniture to maximize FUS (free unidentified space). Help to minimalism furniture by double or triple use: use benches for sitting and sleeping; use tables for eating and working; use balls for playing and sitting ."(Karl Vandenhende - Architect)Location is in the very
center of Brussels exactly between the old city and the European quarter.The neighborhood is multi-cultural with many exotic and Belgian restaurants, various shops and local specialities. The by a leading newspaper elected best " Belgian fries" are found around the corner. Metro-station Madou is on the same block. Will feature in Fine Living " Around the world in 80 homes" show - dates will be forwarded shortly.

"View: incredible (100+)

Situation: close enough (90)

Ambiance: total enjoyment (100)

Having visited Brussels on a regular basis for the last 4 years, meeting Peter & his apartment opened up another dimension regarding this fascinating city. The height (24 stories) not only lifts the soul but a
view like this brings a being closer to the area & the elements. I spent most of my time playing music & absorbing the 180o view after a stressful day at work. Truly unique in every aspect. Thx.
