Emscher Kunst in Essen, Germany by OOZE

Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden

The project Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden is located at one of the narrowest points on Emscher Island, between the Emscher River and the Rhine-Herne Canal. The walk through the project starts next to the Rhine-Herne Canal, with visitors entering the Community Garden; it then leads uphill beside the fully exposed water supply and treatment installation. The walk ends on an elevated platform above the Emscher River dyke. Here visitors can view the challenging topography of the landscape and see for themselves how the highly polluted (and for this reason fenced-off) Emscher River is elevated above the nearby towns, which have sunk as a result of mining activity in the previous century. Looking down the slope towards the Rhine-Herne Canal, they have a clear view of the complex water processing installation, which works with the water on the site between the two waterways.

Sea Side Appartement in Knokke-Heist, Belgium by OOZE

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Article source: OOZE

Knokke-Heist is a mythical “cité balnéaire” in Belgium. The apartment lies on the 2nd floor with a view over the Rubensplein.

Despite its generous size, the typology of the flat is very long and narrow which makes the current layout very inefficient with regard to corridors and effective living spaces. A clear reorganization of the internal partitions and bathroom layouts enables us to develop a new specific concept not only for the space and the materials, but also for the display of the client art collection, a mini “personal museum” A frame to look out at the ocean and towards the beach in the daytime, the apartment becomes a glowing space to look into at night time.
