Horizon in Knokke-Heist, Belgium by BOGDAN & VAN BROECK

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: BOGDAN & VAN BROECK

ELEMENTARY AND PRIMARY SCHOOL IN OPEN LANDSCAPE | OPEN CALL ORGANISED BY THE FLEMISH GOVERNMENT ARCHITECT, 2nd LAUREATE

The historical permanent presence of the polder landscape is experienced as a quality of the site that is to be protected, and it is also used as a source of design choices. The typology of the school buildings is designed analogous to that of the polder farms as solitary volumes in the landscape. The outdoor space is structured as a landscape similar to the diverse and flexible patchwork of different fields in the polder.

“Hostel Wadi in Hoge Rielen” in Kasterlee, BELGIUM by Studio Associato Bernardo Secchi – Paola Viganò

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Studio Associato Bernardo Secchi – Paola Viganò

De Hoge Rielen is a place for civic and ecological education in the 300-hectare forest of a former military base. The O-shaped “Hostel Wadi” encircles part of the pine forest, retained as a memento of a disappearing artificial landscape that is rapidly transforming into broad leaf vegetation. A circular, ever variable winter garden towards the pine forest acts as a space of appropriation and continuity between interior and exterior, between groups and the individual. The architecture explores relationships and shared space: the enjoyment of the view occurs on a collective terrain.

SCHOOL FOR ORNAMENTAL METALWORK AND BLACKSMITHING AND ERLECHT in Anderlecht, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: BURO II & ARCHI+I

The new building houses both courses – ornamental metalwork and blacksmithing – in order to provide the students (adult education and evening classes) with all modern comforts while creating a showcase for the craft. The plot is located on a site with two other schools, the CVO and the Erasmus University College, which form a campus. With its compact form, the new school similarly inhabits the space. The plot was selected so that the rest of the site can be used as a green area.

14 facades’ house in Belgium by m architecture

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Article source: m architecture

The entire project was conceived in an economical way to preserve materials and to optimize the ratio between the area and the construction cost ($3,280 per square foot), but not at the expense of quality. Indeed, the owner and architect did not discount architectural quality, spatial functionality, etc. Thus, for example, the choice to develop a light, wood construction for the whole house allows for:

This entrance is characterized, in particular, by the office building ‘Het Licht’ (the light), erected in 1930, drawn by architects Fernand and Maxime Brunfaut. An 18th century building stands next to this light-giving city beacon and it too needs to be preserved and restored.
