Historical Moriaanstraat

is part of Antwerp's old city center

Moriaanstraat, where the house is located, was opened in 1549-1552, and around 1550 the city was roughly divided as follows: along the river was the castle, separated from the surrounding neighbourhoods by a stone wall, a moat and an ice wall.

16th Century House

Adapted in the 19th century

The holiday home 'De Moriaan' at No. 6 Moriaanstraat, originally built in the second half of the 16th century, was remodelled in the 19th century. The house is partially stuccoed and painted, providing a façade with stepped canopies and retaining an overhanging opening with curly patterned anchors in the walls and rectangular windows with drip thresholds.
It originally formed a traditional Broad House together with the adjacent building at No. 8. The traditional Broad House of Antwerp consisted of five bay windows and a three-storey Flemish tile with a saddle-shaped roof.
