A Modern House That Lights Up In Different Colors

Words

Designed by Brussels-based architect Bassam El Okeily in collaboration with Karla Menten, the ‘Narrow House’ is a minimal three-story residence with a unique facade located in Bilzen, Belgium. In the evening, the modern street facade – which features two interior balconies in skewed shapes – is lit up in different colors resembling a light sculpture. Inside, the 5.3 meter wide-building has several geometric windows and a jagged ceiling.
