Belgian architecture firm dmvA re-imagined a historic home in Mechelen to meet strict building codes (the city is named 4 times on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites) and open up an older building for a growing family.

Our favorite trick? The architects at dmvA designed a grid of transparent glass floors and a 3-story light atrium to maximize light and a sense of airiness in the heart of the older building.

Look at all the hidden storage!
