AZ SINT-LUCAS CAR PARK in Ghent, Belgium by ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Article source: ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN 

From Ghent’s ring road the first sight of the hospital AZ Sint-Lucas one gets is the multi-storey car park. For this reason the design devotes a lot of attention to the atmosphere and appearance of the site. The project zone is split into two parts, with the high capacity car park distributed over two buildings. This creation of two smaller buildings is effective within the spatial context and the granular size of the hospital campus, and creates a visual axis leading to the hospital.

Article source: ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN

For the campus of the Community Education in Ninove a master plan was first of all put together. This master plan would develop a total vision, split in three stages. The first stage includes building a primary school, a secondary school and a laboratory. When putting this master plan together, a number of issues were uncovered which sharply reduce the campus’ potential quality:

Post Office Site Conversion in Aalst, Belgium by ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Article source: ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN

The former post office site in Aalst was a mixture of industrial buildings of the former ‘Filature du Canal’. The “Filatures& Urban Fabric(s): Masterplan stationsomgeving Aalst” masterplan, designed by the Christian Kieckens Architects, started from a site conversion, whilst keeping the main building of the former mill in the Manchester building along the Vaartstraat. The modifications to this building have been kept to a minimum because of organisational and programmatic interpretation, which corresponds with the scale of the building. The facades have been cleaned and re-pointed and equipped with new outside joinery work after its historical model. The building has been renovated on the inside also, in order for it to comply with current regulations, without however interfering with the warehouse’s authenticity.

Renovation of protected houses in Bruges, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

Two disused protected 17th-century houses on a brewery site in the centre of Bruges were rebuilt into a family home (with existing retail and storage space).

The different window types and added rear façade are witness of successive conversions over time. The design starts from the changes the building has undergone and adds a new layer. The historical and authentic parts are kept or reconstructed and, where necessary, structurally improved. These elements (doors, fireplaces, beams, stairs) go hand in hand with new elements, and remain legible.

House of Alain Hubert in Rhode-St-Genèse, Belgium by Philippe Samyn and Partners

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Article source: Philippe Samyn and Partners

The Avenue Bel Horizon, typical of a number of residential districts located in the surroundings of Brussels, is bordered by houses, some isolated, some in small groups, arranged in narrow and deep plots. The one that interests us is no exception to the rule: 20 m wide along the road (to the North) and 73 m deep, with a building area limited to 11 m in width and 15 m in depth, 6 m away from the road.
