CD Poolhouse in Belgium by Marc Merckx
The pared down interiors by Belgian designer Marc Merckx are evidence of his constant search for the perfect balance between proportion, materials and space. His style may vary from a warm minimal to a simple classical, but his approach is fundamentally the same. Spaces are meticulously planned and rearranged to ensure functional use as well as quality of living.
His focus on space and light lift the minimal to the luxurious and materials appeal to all senses.CD Poolhouse is a minimalist dwelling and one of Merckx’s latest projects. This stunning holiday home features a black timber facade which sits comfortably in it’s natural surrounds, offset by the blue shades of the swimming pool. The symmetry of the structure is mirrored by the reflection of the water, creating a beautiful sense of repetition.
Marc Merckx’s portfolio includes a wide variety of projects: from private houses, lofts and apartments to shops, offices, hotels and restaurants. Recently, in collaboration with Nicolas Schuybroek, Marc worked on the refurbishment of an optician in Brussels, an apartment in Paris, a spa and hotel in Luxembourg, a private house in Mexico City and a boutique hotel in the USA.
