On 15 December, we had the pleasure of welcoming Tom Callebaut to our Bcafé. Callebaut is a senior lecturer in interior architecture at KU Leuven. Furthermore, he works as a freelance consultant for architectural competitions. It is in this context that we got to know him during the competition for the St Godelieve abbey.
Callebaut recently completed his PhD, which revolves around 'generous space': How can you use public space more generously? How can you make space normally understood as private more public? He already gave a brilliant answer to this himself with his own home, which landed on the shortlist of the Dezeen Awards.
