About

Jade Vijt, interior architect, Brussels



Graduated from the Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels (2011), Jade Vijt is an Interior Designer with a true passion for her work. The many projects that she has already completed in her young career, all rich in experience and diversity, are testament to that! She renovates, refurbishes and designs apartments, develops and materialises projects, creates set-ups for sales premises, designs furniture, stages ephemeral events, and produces scenic decorations for exhibitions, social evenings as well as for concerts.
It is alongside the internationally renowned Belgian architect Michel Penneman (Detrois) that she has gained her experience. For nearly four years, Jade contributed to the realisation of several exhilarating projects; the renovation of the Hotel Atlas, in the heart of the fashionable Dansaert district in Brussels, as well as the showroom of the brand Limited Edition in Rue de Namur, Brussels; the creation of Letiuz, a concept inspired by the “Salad Bars” of New York; the replanning of chocolatier Pierre Marcolini’s boutiques, as well as the colour scheme for the Hofstra University of New-York for Pantone.
Today, she continues to practice her passion, having set up her own architectural business. Mixing functionality and aesthetic is the recurrent leitmotif, which follows her throughout her different projects. Her latest achievement? The creation of the first “Stoemp Bar” for the Restaurant Madame Chapeau in Brussels’ city centre, which was a real success!

Diplômée de l’Institut Saint-Luc de Bruxelles (2011), Jade Vijt est une architecte d’intérieur passionnée par son métier. En témoignent les multiples projets qui façonnent déjà son jeune parcours, riche d’expertises diverses et variées ! Pour ses clients, elle rénove et agence des appartements, développe des concepts, réalise des espaces de vente, dessine du mobilier, scénarise des lieux éphémères, conçoit des scénographies d’expositions, de soirées ou encore de concerts.
C’est auprès de l’architecte belge - à la renommée internationale - Michel Penneman (Detrois), qu’elle fera ses armes. Durant près de 4 ans Jade contribuera à la réalisation de nombreux projets exaltants : la rénovation de l’Hôtel Atlas, en plein cœur du quartier Dansaert à Bruxelles, celle du showroom de la marque Limited Edition rue de Namur (Bruxelles), la création de Letiuz, un concept inspiré des « salad-bars » de New York, le réaménagement des boutiques du chocolatier Pierre Marcolini ou encore la mise en couleur de l’Université d’Hofstra à New York pour Pantone.
Aujourd’hui, c’est en son nom qu’elle continue d’exercer ce métier qu’elle aime tant, mêlant l’utile à l’esthétique comme un leitmotiv qui la suit tout au long de ses différents projets. Son dernier concept ? La création du premier « Stoemp Bar » pour le restaurant Madame Chapeau au centre de Bruxelles, un véritable succès !
