CB Residence


CB Residence (not mine, sadly) is a remarkably beautiful, pared down home designed by Belgian architect, Marc Merckx. The residence features a wonderful combination of materials, including a geometric grey brick façade with concrete, large black steel window frames, and gorgeous oak flooring throughout.

The large windows allows for soft natural light to enter the predominantly white interior space, which results in a very soothing aesthetic. As we venture through the spacious and serene living area featuring a simplistic concrete fire place, we arrive at the kitchen, where there’s a striking black and white contrast that works superbly.

Before establishing his own practice in Antwerp, Marc Merckx worked for 15 years as a design director and product designer for architect Vincent Van Duysen, managing his residential and commercial projects, as well as designing furniture and objects for well-established international brands.
