Built on an unusually proportioned narrow plot in Antwerp’s city centre, CSD Architecten’s first residential project together was just completed a few months ago. The practice itself was established only about a year ago, consisting of three partners, Britt Crepain – daughter of well-known Belgian architect Jo Crepain – Stefan Spaens and Joep Debie.

Their townhouse project spreads across five floors, brightly lit via skylights above the stairwell and a glass front façade. Living spaces are located on the top floors with more private rooms and the practice’s own office placed on the flowing open-plan building’s lower levels.
