Ten Houses: Christian De Groote
Oscar Riera Ojeda
Rockport, 1999 - Architecture - 141 pages
The residential work of Christian de Groote is characterized by the fact that each building was conceived for a specific client, and therefore highly personalized. In what he calls "the house as a portrait of a family", De Groote acts as the translator of the interests, habits, and longings of the family into a structure. With over one hundred and Fifty residences built, the unparalleled work of Christian De Groote and his firm is examined and displayed in this monograph.
