Residence VDB Has Its Own Underground Lair

On the short of Belgium’s Leie river you’ll find Residence VDB, an opulent, absurd and downright breathtaking mansion that would be at home on the cover of any established architecture magazine while still being crazy enough to be featured on MTV Cribs. Designed by Govaert & Vanhoutte Architects, Residence VDB effortlessly blends geometric concrete construction and floor to ceiling windows in a way that makes the entire property feel like Mies van der Rohe was contracted by a super villain to build a lair. The first floor features all the “day functions” like the pool, terrace and pool house, while the second floor houses the master bed and bath with a private roof deck along with two guest quarters with separate baths. Marvelous views of the river abound, but the real magic happens underground. One quick trip down the stairs or on the car elevator and you’ll find yourself inside what is essentially a European night club complete with full bar in front of a pool viewing window, DJ booth, lounge benches, built-in cigar cabinet and a place to park all those exotic rides you only take out on weekends. As far as we can tell, it’s not for sale or rent, but we’re convinced the price tag would be out of our budget anyway.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
