Built in 1924, his personal home was truly avant-garde.
It was conceived in the very beginning of his career as an architect, after extensive research into modern means of construction.
De Koninck introduced rational architecture to Belgium, stemming from the German Bauhaus, and the use of pre-fabricated elements.
We cannot say that this house is a great aesthetic success.
Especially since the architect transformed the original house in 1968 for the sake of profitability, he added two floors.
Today (2021), De Koninck’s studio is occupied by an interior designer, Caroline Notté, who has been able to highlight the beautiful spaces created by the architect, while preserving them.
