Contemporary Comfortable Home from Dennis T’Jampens Architectural Projects

“B” Destelbergen Contemporary Comfort from Dennis T’Jampens 01


Sometimes it’s not easy to find a modern home that’s also full of light — but Dennis T’Jampens brings it about in Destelbergen, with care and custom details. To T’Jampen’s trademark uses of neutral, warm tones against a background of white, this design adds the architectural detail of skylights over the stairwell and the bathtub – additional splashes of light in areas that might otherwise be shadowed. Bringing the outside in are cheerful windows — a pair over the kitchen sink and a wide-angle panel in the living room. Also, in the living room and augmenting the coziness of leather chairs, couch, and patterned rug, you find a wide fireplace; the eat-in kitchen adds umber-toned cabinets and stainless steel to the palette and an easy, convenient layout for quick meals or entertaining. And little surprises are tucked into the minimalist approach: a handy counter serves as a beverage bar or a work space; behind charcoal-toned sliding doors are shelves for dishes, books, or miscellany, and open shelves also surround the fireplace, giving the owners a prime spot to display ceramics and other art.


The bathroom continues the clean, neutral palette of pale sand-colored tiles and white accents, while at the same time providing space and luxury for a good pampering. A wide shower, plus a deep soaking tub, give you options for refreshment and relaxation — even a starlit soak, with a skylight for gazing above. There’s room enough for two to wash or get ready for work, with double sinks and a wall of mirrors, illuminated by uncluttered recessed lighting in the ceiling; it’s efficiency without austerity. The sum of it is simple: neutrals, warmth, and light give Destelbergen all the freshness of modern…with no harsh edges.
