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.

Pakhuis Clemmen in Veldstraat 82A, 9000 Gent, Belgium by ALT architectuur

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

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.

Concept: ‘Panoramic’ swimming pool

Although the principal dream for years of a swimming pool in his small town garden, he preferred to first realize the renovation of his 17th century mansion. While the contractors were about to start the works, an abandoned school building, adjacent to his garden, was offered for sale. The principal did not hesitate, works were stopped and the school building was bought.  After many analyses and intense discussions, the principal decided to realize the swimming pool first.

The business complex building is designed as an expansion of an existing business site. A substantial green strip makes for a buffering for the village centre of Westkapelle.

The business complex building is the start for the completion of the third phase of the business site. The premise for the design was, on the one hand, to create a landmark, but on the other hand, to also create modularity and fl exibility, accessibility and sustainability.

H2Olab in 2140 BORGERHOUT, BELGIUM by BOB361 architecten

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Article source: BOB361 architecten

Meeting with a client who asks to design an extention of 100m2 to an existing building of 15000m2 in the form of a bridge, is rather exceptional.

Consequently, we understood the nature of the task to be the creation of a real connection between the two buildings, which implicates much more than the simple creation of a physical connection or the creation of additional square metres. The theme of “connection” will inspire the design in all its aspects. The two most important aspects hereby are the structure and the organization.

Mixed Use Infill 3 Houses and an Office in Antwerp, Belgium by Collectief Noord Architecten

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Collectief Noord Architecten

Three pavillions and a house give shape to an urban garden in the city centre. Each pavillion is similar to the other, but differ like brothers do. Concrete garden blocks in the facade sustain the expression of a garden folly and remind us of the attempts of Wright and Sullivan to democratize ornament. On top of each pavillion there is a roof pavillion: a garden in a garden in the city.

Discarded construction trailer transformed into small dwelling in Beerse, Belgium by karel verstraeten

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: karel verstraeten 

After purchasing a discarded construction trailer for just €15, owners Kris and Griet together with Ghent-based architect practice Karel Verstraeten have transformed it into an inhabitable space.

Wanting to create a small dwelling that could be used for either studying and resting or partying, the unit was pulled to the back of the garden by a local farmer. Its existing structure was completely stripped back and replaced with new materials.
