New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects

The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.

The Energy Arch – “De Energieboog” in Tienen, Belgium by AST77 architects and engineers b.vba

Friday, July 11th, 2014

As a spin-off of IMEC, Photovoltech nv. became one of the most important European producer of multicrystal- line silicon solar cells. Photovoltech was founded in 2001 and has three major shareholders namely Total, GDF Suez and IMEC.

After the first years of investments in the solar cells development and an industrial expansion, the company decided in 2007 to install, on their own business estate, the first electrical production photovoltaic unit. The challenge that was given to the design team, was to create a construction for this photovoltaic production unit on the same innovative manner such as Photovoltech does with the production of their own solar cells.

For years now, the Vlaamse Vereniging voor Watersport (Flemish Aquatics Association) was in dire need of a new clubhouse. The club received a 27 year concession for the lot at the end of the Oude Wenduinse Steenweg and the Bevrijdingsplein, between the former sluice dock and the harbour channel.

The basic idea for the new clubhouse is the intertwining of water, land and tourism. Not only did they focus on the layout, but also the functionality of the building, which will become a public attraction as well as a haven for hikers.

House V at R [2012] in Roeselare, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014


The farm used to consist of several buildings clustered around a residential section. Most farms in the Roeselare area consist of two volumes, situated either parallel or perpendicular to each other. The new home was embedded parallel to the barn. Positioning the home in an L-shape opposite the barn will define the residential section a superior way and strengthen the character of the space. The residential section lies at the heart of the site and acts like a turntable for all internal circulation.

The decision by the city of Ghent to establish its department of culture in an old warehouse on the river Leie was intended as a bold statement. By situating it at this particular site, a new axis is created, that runs perpendicular to the main commercial axis in the city centre.
