The Modernica Studio designers have done it again! With more and more employees riding their bicycles to work, we wanted to provide a secure place to keep them.
“What to do?” We asked ourselves, “Buy a bike rack?” “Never!” We decided to put one together in the metal shop, of course. What do you think of the end result?

Maison van den Schrieck, in Herent, Belgium, was built between 1962-64 by modernist architect Jacques Dupuis. It’s all angles and straight lines, and we love its simple geometric forms.
The simple lines and single-story layout make the home appear smaller than it actually is; Maison van den Schrieck includes 7 bedrooms, a large kitchen and dining area, several living areas, and a service wing.
Maison van den Schrieck is considered one of the greatest examples of Dupuis work, reflecting his unique modernist style that was influenced greatly by the local traditions of European architecture. The house has been preserved beautifully and remains mostly unchanged to this day.
