The third and last floor of Maison Brederode is hosted by Pieter Gillis. He was a typographer, a humanist and the secretary of Antwerp from 1509 until 1532. His best friends Desiderius Erasmus and Thomas More always come over to write and talk the whole night and when they drink too much, they sleep on the super comfortable sofa bed in the living room. The large open kitchen, the built-in closet and desk, the luxurious bathroom and the big roof terrace of this residence feels like Utopia for him.
Pieter Gillis always makes sure he provides his guests with some basic amenities: toiletpaper, soap, dishwashing liquid and tablets, coffee & tea, sugar, pepper, salt and olive oil. To spoil them he chooses Egyptian cotton bed- and bath linen and hair & body wash from Rituals.
