Tall, dark and handsome, this two unit apartment building in the Netherlands was designed by Dutch architect Bedaux de Brouwer. Located in Tilburg, the unusual shape of the five-story apartment project is finished with black, glazed bricks. On each floor, projections from the central cylindrical mass give each apartment views of the surrounding urban space. I’m trying to figure out why exactly the project takes such an unusual form, and my best guess is that it is an attempt to avoid frontality. But who knows other than Bedaux de Brouwer why it’s shaped this way. So maybe it’s better to say tall, dark, handsome and mysterious.

    That’s nice! We’re moving to the area where this building is standing. Nice to see my hometown, Tilburg, on this site.
