The Narrow House by Bassam El Okeily

This narrow house is located in a small city called Bilzen, near the Holland frontier.

The ground floor of the house is closed from view but the upper portion is transparent in glass. A very interesting feature is the display window which reveals two balconies in skewed positions projection from a white facade. As if they were to drop off unexpectedly.

The lower balcony contains a reading corner for a library, with a sheltered view of the street. The upper balcony accommodates an artist’s studio. Blue light turns the facade into a spectacular light sculpture after dark.
