Meet Humans of Castart #8

Sam Peeters, an Antwerp based Interior Designer with a keen eye for bringing pure emotions into buildings. With his company Contekst who’s managed together with his brother (this looks familiar 🙂 ), Sam and his team have created various unique projects, from objects to public space.

To immerse us completely in his world, we’ve met Sam in one of his never-ending projects, Hotel Pilar. For those who are looking for a small city trip to Antwerp when times are back to normal, we would highly recommend getting spoiled in this 5-story eclectic house hotel & restaurant focused on uniting people.

Within a few minutes it was clear to us that Sam had a really passionate and inspiring view on designing buildings. Is it his eager to design spaces in his mind on sleepless nights as a teenager? Or his first completed studies as a historian? Probably both of these made him what he is today. An Interior Architect who puts the need for authenticity, spice of uniqueness and the search of reusing pieces as crucial for a successful renovation.

When talking to Sam its obvious that in all of his projects (and people that he is working with), are one of a kind. He is looking in the special things. Things that could go for the extra mile, the extra touch or the extra joie de vivre when it comes to people. That’s why all projects start from scratch and have a unique story to tell.

Sam is wearing our Italian yarn Grosz Burgundy knit and Hockney regular fitted trousers. Not surprisingly two timeless pieces locally manufactured and shaped with a modern twist.
