This building on Kerkstraat was largely built in the nineteenth and twentieth century. In the façade, a 17th-century bell façade was reused. After merging the basement and ground floor and the addition of an extension at the rear, the space was first used as a workshop and later as a car garage. With this restoration, the building has been adapted for use as a single home. On the ground floor, a beautiful large living space has been created with lots of light through the skylights and a 9-meter-wide facade to the city garden at the rear. The roof of the extension has a sedum roof. The property has been adapted to the current standard with new installations and finishing.
