This gorgeous house is one of our smaller homes with 10 rooms and a lovely cozy feeling thanks to the layout and warm beige and brown tones. The goal of this house was to maximize the existing walls and the fantastic texture and color we discovered under the paint and wallpaper.
Schuman 58 is slightly smaller than the usual Cohabs house, (it’s still got ten rooms!) and this creates an even more intimate and homey ambiance. With this goal in mind, we reused several wooden beams that were recovered at the construction site. Decorating the dining room walls with them adds warmth, dimension, and depth to a space that was made for sharing meals and unwinding after a long day.
We’re constantly trying new things and improving with each house. For Schuman 58, we tested a few new things to help make our homes even more sustainable such as a built-in sink that recovers and saves water, and a new kind of recycled plastic that will play a large part in a future house.
The house sits in a lovely neighborhood, within walking distance of both the iconic Parc du Cinquantenaire and the lovely Square Ambiorix. If you’re looking for a pleasant afternoon, you can meander around the Quartier des Squares or meet a housemate at one of the numerous cozy cafes that line the neighborhood.
