Architect Jo Van Den Berghe and Director Antony Hudek take us on a facinating tour of this brutalist hidden gem.

Van Wassenhove House

Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium
Architect: Juliaan Lampens, 1974
Our hosts are Antony Hudek, Director of Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens that manages the house, and architect Jo Van Den Berge, Co-founder of the Juliaan Lampens Foundation.

Van Wassenhove House is designed by architect Juliaan Lampens (1926-2019) and built between 1972 and 1974. Lampens was a successful traditional architect in the early years of his career. After Expo ‘58 he created his own distinctive and unique architectural brutalist style that had a big influence on the way concrete was used in both the interior and exterior. Bachelor Albert van Wassenhove a teacher with a passion for contemporary art and architecture commissioned the house. After his death in 2012 the house was bequeathed to the University of Ghent who in turn gave it on a long-term loan to museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle.
