Living with art takes on a whole new meaning for Veerle Wenes, owner of Valerie Traan, the art gallery she created in her own home. Located in Antwerp, the gallery was designed by Lens°Ass Architects, a Belgium practice that excels in turning traditional spaces into contemporary dwellings. In this case, a traditional Antwerp dwelling was renovated to include an open gallery space with modern finishes overlooking a courtyard. The juxtaposition of the original building with the newly renovated spaces not only provides tension between the old and new, but also consciously blurs the boundaries between home and work.
