Turnhout, Steenweg op Mol 66
Huis Schellekens (home Schellekens) is the house built in 1936 by Jozef Schellekens for himself and his family. Inspired by Dutch Modernism and New Objectivity, it was not really accepted by the neighbours in Turnhout. For years it was covered in ivy to cover the architecture that was too modern for the area. In 2012 it was restored to its original shape and colours and made public.
The house is light and airy with large windows. By taking samples they tried to get back to the original colours in the rooms.
