ANNDENNE’S CULTURAL CENTER in Belgium by LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Article source: LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Andenne’s Cultural Center’s extension has not been designed as a single appendice filling a lack of space but was rather thought as an opportunity to deal with complex problematic which were restraining the fullfilment of the building. Indeed, its situation in a disparate urban fabric, between supermarket and parking area, didn’t give approriate visibility and accessibility to the Center. At the same time, this location reveals a great potential on the landscape scale. On the banks of the river, the site is perceivable from the main road between Liège and Namur.

Puinhuis in Ghent, Belgium by FELT with 360 architecten

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: FELT

At the outskirts of the quaint Belgian city of Ghent we encounter an idiosyncratic renovation of a classic Flemish townhouse. The original building was wrapped within a new envelope, delineating the new volume. Carrying three facades, the building is situated on the end of a row of houses. This unique position provides the dwelling three different opportunities of sunlight, a 270° panoramic view and its very own secret garden.

Workhouse de Scheepvaart in Schoten, Belgium by HUB

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Article source: HUB

The workhouse is part of a complex situated alongside the canal which has a very original and distinct character thanks to its special typology and materialisation. Unlike traditional industrial ‘boxes’, the workhouse’s programmatic mix is rather peculiar: it includes a garage, workshops, offices and a caretaker’s residence.

Renovation & extension of a holiday house in Villers-en- Fagne, Belgium by Dehullu Architecten

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Dehullu Architecten

The quality of the existing dwelling consists not only of the building itself, but also of the surroundings and orientation.  On renovating the existing building the architects worked with local materials to stay as close as possible to the original design.  Logically the main living room was relocated in an extension oriented on the beautiful surroundings of the small and rural town of Villers-en-Fagne.  This extension was conceived  in a delicate and quite sober structure.  The living area is suspended between the two slabs of roof and floor.  The connection with the terrace and the green and hilly  surroundings is optimized for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
