Hot off the press

The photography book A Painter's House depicts the home of the painter Marten Melsen (1870-1947). He was a friend of James Ensor, who called him "le beau peintre des paysans". Around the 1st World War, famous writers, composers and artists came to visit this home, untouched since 1947. This book contains 65 photos by Karin Borghouts and is published by Snoeck Publishers in a graphic design by Jean-Michel Meyers with text by Jan H. Melsen, grandson of the painter.

A Painter's House is a personal initiative of Karin Borghouts in cooperation with the Marten Melsen Foundation.

Architecture Campus Cadix

Karin Borghouts photographed Campus Cadix for Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architects.
The project for the new Cadix school campus on the Eilandje in Antwerp Belgium is a complex urban and architectural design task with a long history. The project was implemented in phases from 2017 and will be fully operational from 2022. It involves the integration of two secondary schools and housing in a highly urban port environment. The highly diverse programme components are spread over a large new building block and several existing monumental buildings, all designed by Emiel van Averbeke. The former primary school with kindergarten from 1927 and the former 'recruitment hall for dockworkers' from 1938 or the 'CAD sheds' form the heart of the development. They have been restored, rebuilt and extended.

Architecture water tower De Reusch

Photography for DEDRIE Architects. The national monumental water tower in Schimmert, The Netherlands, was built in 1926-1927 and designed in Amsterdam school style by Architect Jos Wielders. The redevelopment of this tower involved housing the regional experience and catering concept Eten en drinken van zover je kan kijken. A concept that stands for regional products and awareness of responsible food. Central to the redevelopment was the realisation of an energy-neutral national monument.
