Het Kielzog Cultural and Municipal Complex in Hoogezand, The Netherlands by De Zwarte Hond

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: De Zwarte Hond 

The Municipality of Hoogezand-Sappemeer has been given a single, prominent, public building in which a theatre, an arts centre, a library and the town hall are accommodated. In the dynamic heart of this Dutch municipality citizens are served a wide palette of services, information, education, culture and recreation. Existing elements, such as the theatre auditorium, dating back to the 1980s, are re-used in the new development. The adjacent town hall, at the moment still in an outdated state, will ultimately undergo a complete transformation. In the meantime the existing premises and the new build function as a single entity. The connecting, central street forms a temporary solution to the gaps in the present infrastructure. Both in terms of use, as well as technological exploitation and urban design, the new central building has great advantages for Hoogezand-Sappemeer.

Byblos Town Hall in Lebanon by HASHIM SARKIS STUDIOS

Saturday, May 21st, 2016


Hashim Sarkis was awarded the commission of the new Byblos Town Hall after an anonymous open competition.

Byblos, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and a World Heritage Site, has been growing outside the historic city bounds to the point where most of the city’s population now lives in its suburbs. Boasting a historic harbor, two crusader castles, several historic churches and mosques in addition to an extensive Phoenician, Hellenistic and Roman heritage, the city is the most visited tourist site in Lebanon.

The village is small and the building is of a small scale, with a correspondingly small budget and program that included formal configuration of this square, a transcendental feature of rural Spanish life that the village lacked.

The project’s 5 objectives, which encompass the new development, are to:

  • develop the town hall plaza;
  • create a connection with the existing historic building;
  • close off Rue Benoit Hure (whose only use was to provide access to the Mercuriales car park);
  • design a building whose scale would be compatible with the existing buildings and would help to reorganise the space;
  • open a pedestrian zone linking the cinema and the shops in order to develop community life.

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Article source: Sanchez Gil Arquitectos

We begin with an unstructured space with multiple conditions that required specific answers, exposed party walls, immovable telephone substation, a messy urban fabric with uneven heights, streets leading to the site …

We seek a single design capable of solving all the urban problems.
