Staircase Filled With Life

Antwerp, Belgium, 2018

The central staircase in the Antwerp townhouse from 1900 immediately reveals that early bourgeois lifestyle. The escalier d’apparat was an architectural status symbol, intended to make an impression. The entire residence is constructed around the staircase. The various flats and bureaus of the building’s occupants open onto that majestic stairwell. The glass-domed cupola provides daylight access to all storeys along the stairs. Voorjans reinterpreted that skylight here with a contemporary photo installation by Wouter Deruytter.
