Modern Castle

Villa Dirickz: A Modern Castle in Brussels

When we think of castles, the last adjective that comes to mind is 'modern', but that's just what this castle is, modern. Very. Construction of the Villa Diricks, located in Brussels, was completed in 1933. Its architect was Marcel Leborgne, "one of the founders of Modernism in Belgium".  

In a state of disrepair, it was purchased a few years ago by a developer and renovated. Added were four bathrooms (the original only had one), and indoor swimming pool and an elevator.
