But besides all these very-very(!)-nice-to-have extras, there are a lot of deeper-lying qualities inherently connected to this project and this location. One of the most important qualities that, in my opinion, often unconsciously has a huge impact on your mood, is the environment which you come home to, even before you have entered the door.
A street full of grey façades, night shops and no trees in sight deserves at best a low 4 for atmosphere and cosiness.
Louise Marie, on the other hand, is located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Antwerp. On your way home you go past beautiful Art Nouveau mansions, with almost every street lined with trees or even small parks such as the Hof van Leysen and the Hertogenpark.
You can just pop into the Albert Heijn supermarket, which is just across the street, to do some shopping. And to be honest, a good supermarket across the street is a quality of life in itself, isn’t it? :)
