As a house gallery, thirtynine wants to organize small private venues, presenting furniture, objects, photography or contemporary art in a personal environment. It offers a platform for congenial minds, and this within the avant-garde spirit of the 39 house. The artist enters this world and makes it her or his own.
The street number 39, giving the gallery its name, is an ode to the architecture of the modernist house. Designed by architects Drieskens and Dubois in 1973, it was recently renovated by interior architect Kristoffer Gielen and architect Frédéric Vander Laenen. It’s shapes are straightforward but detailed, with a great love and respect for its proportions, playing with volumes, light and shadow, respecting and connecting with the surrounding environment.
The seven oak trees in the garden are part of the architecture and the soul of the house.
