Amidst a block of more traditional houses in Bilzen, Belgium, Narrow House stands out with a display-box-like facade that houses sculptural balconies.  Brussels-based architect Bassam El-Okeily collaborated with fellow Belgian architect Karla Menten to design the 5.3 meter wide home.  The street level has a white windowless facade with only a front door and garage door.  Atop that, the second and third floors each have a small angular balcony that slightly face one another.  To allow sufficient natural light, the ceiling mass and walls are sliced away along the back of the home.  At night the front face lights up with various colors, acting as a landmark and public work of art.
